Laura, Z and I took advantage of a newly acquired day off during Thanksgiving to visit the Tuolumne and investigate the state of the salmon run after a cold fall storm passed through. We saw one live salmon and one dead salmon that had been counted (head lopped-off by CDFW). The best part of the day was watching Zephyr throw rocks into the river and but not before checking to make sure no one (animals) was living under the rocks he was throwing. We also got to see some neat iridescence in the icy cirrostratus clouds lingering from the previous day's storm. Please click the photos above to see more photos and videos from the day!
The 2015 edition of the Laffin Cabin Thanksgiving was a huge success. 54 people in a cabin that was meant for six!
Today we're going to be comparing several different soils (including the one you brought from home) using an interactive map that was created by UC Davis. Click on the picture below to go to the Interactive soils map, then answer the questions in the Google Form.
