Goodbye Texas ... FOREVER!!!

After 17 hours of travel, that included much time at airports, 2 planes and a bus, I finally made it home to Ry & the Little Town!

Let's just say, I couldn't be any happier to end my field work!

I'll spare you the boring stories of spending 3 weeks in a small town, 5 hours of travel for 2 hours of work, and the desire to kill my advisor! The highlight of the trip was the "Terlingua Pub Crawl 2008" (which means Joe & I drank at the ONLY 3 bars within an 80 mile radius)!

Here are a few photos for you!

A few mating pupfish (male on left (silver), female on right (brownish)).
I took more than 100 of these stupid photos!


2 male pupfish in a throw-down battle!

A different species of pupfish that we were able to swim with at a little state park!

I love fish shoals!

Me & Joe at Santa Elena Canyon (in our kick-ass hats)!
The left part of the canyon (behind me) is Mexico and the right side is the US, with the Rio Grande running between them!

The roadrunner that lived with us!
(This photo is for Nephew, who asked if we'd really see roadrunners in the desert!)
