Welp, that title is actually a bit of a misnomer. I really have about 4 more days of field work that I need to knock out over the next week or so. DETAILS. I know I wrote a lot recently about how stressful the summer can be for me. It’s my busiest time of the year, field work is exhausting, and I probably don’t get enough alone time to really recharge (#introvertprobs). But, more than any of those less positive things, I really love how much time I get to spend outside each field season. I know I really like it, because I take about a zillion obnoxious iPhone pictures in the marsh each summer.
For your enjoyment, here is the view of my summer, from my smart phone.
Honest Tea gave me this gem on a day when I really needed it.There were an embarrassing amount of selfies.
And things didn’t always go to plan.
It was also really, really muddy. Like, really.
Can’t beat that view though.
Got to hang out with some of my favorite marsh critters.
We overtopped our waders more than I might have liked, but we rolled with it.
Did I mention the mud?
Also, those views. Right?!
And, the joy of being done!
