Well, I'm feeling better...the sickness has passed. OK so 'm still hacking a lung and snotty in the literal sense. BUT, teh plague has passed on to a bunch of other people here. The good news is that I was NOT the Typhoid Mary that brought the plague here (whew).
Today we ran all over Rock Creek and Birch Springs. This sounds nice right like a leisurely walk in the park. Wrong. This was walking up and down Pleistocene glacial moraines 1000 foot climbs up 60% grades. We were supposed to be mapping till about 6pm but by 4pm a bunch of us petered out. Mapping glacial and fluvial stuff isn't easy. Right now Google Earth is my friend.
