The Wild West

Today the crew spent another evening collecting video data of bats from an old mine. I had a great time taking pictures during the 30 minute mountain climb that we had to endure in order to reach said mine – I can probably thank the massive energy drink I had in the car for giving me the energy to do this…

View from the Top 

  • We usually have some time to relax before setting up our equipment once we reach the mine. Today, I decided to use that time to finish climbing  to the top of the mountain in order to see this astounding view of Cochise County, Arizona (this view is actually located just outside of Paradise, AZ – go figure):
