With the Master’s – thesis and all – in the bag and my last season of working in northern Michigan possibly less than a week away from ending, I’ll still be away from California indefinitely, both fortunately and unfortunately. There’s a lot to see out there and a lot of cool job opportunities I’d be a fool-of-a-Took to not seek out!
Here are some photos of the jaw-droppingly beautiful north coast of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. I recently backpacked the section North Country Trail near Pictured Rocks and to sum it up…I would recommend it. 🙂
None of these are of rattlesnakes :,( I need rattlesnakes, people! But there are other awesome things going on here in my study area in north central Michigan!
Can you see him?
Not a rattlesnake!
Hognose snake 🙂 Heterodon platirhinos
Woodcock nest – one of them hatched!
Beautiful spring day at Sprig Lake! The butterflies, snakes and raptors were all out enjoying the sun’s rays.
Oh yeah…and I caught a snake 🙂
I love, love, love frogs and it was such a surprise to find bunch of little chorus frogs hanging out by a drainage on the side of a bike trail. They’re so freaking cute!
