So, I’ve been on a couple of field trips since my last post…sorry padres for not updating sooner.
On Saturday, we had an optional field trip, so some people decided to hike Silver peak (turned out to be a survival test as their hike lasted 8 hrs!), other hung out at the field house, and lastly, me and some other people decided to walk around the Chiricahua mountains (crest trail). Wasn’t much bee collecting, since most of the bees were honeybees, but I did take a number of pictures and really enjoyed the sights.
So that was a lot of fun. After that, a few of use took it easy and spent the afternoon in the pool 🙂
Today, we went on our last collection to the desert near Wilcox. It was really hot and there was barely a cloud in the sky, so the bees liked it, but we didn’t so much. Thankfully, we stopped by DQ to get some refreshing snacks.
Here are a few pictures of the field.
