I arrived last night to Monterrey and tomorrow I will board a plane to return to the States. Ending a field season is always bittersweet; however, I still have to get all my samples home safely, so that is occupying my mind mostly right now. The pictures are from some of the final sample collections – scraping stromatolites for DNA, RNA, C, N, and P, and walking along the Rio Mezquites for water chemistry samples. The last picture is of a moon rise, an event I was fortunate enough to watch several nights from the campsite and the cabins where I stayed in town. More photos will be posted on the Flickr site soon.
