Stoked to have finally caught the classic fall morning this season - warm water, cold air, steam fog and sun rising, leaves changing... it was a good way to start the day
#steamfog #sunrise
#tbt to that day I was beyond stoked to learn that @kaayykayyy loves mountain lakes and hiking in beautiful places. Hey we should go do this again!⠀

Happy 45th birthday to the Clean Water Act. Thanks to the political homies of the 70s for recognizing that a river catching fire probably wasn’t mellow and should be addressed in some way. Grateful for their foresight and the beautiful waterways, clean drinking water, and ecologically healthy aquatic communities we’re able to enjoy today as a result. Here’s to some wishful thinking, while we’re on the topic, that the powers that be are unable to completely undermine these regulations and we’re still able to enjoy our freshwater for years to come. ⠀

With what feels like a slower than normal transition to cooler weather and more colorful landscapes in the valley, we’ll take last night’s scene as a win.
It’s all relative.

Funny how easily I can forget about the days-long staring contest I’ve been having with my laptop (pronounced “thesis writing”), as soon as I step out of the Jeep and into my ‘other office’. Quick moment of thanks (hashtag blessed 🙏🏽) to the more fun side of work for getting me out of my apartment briefly. Back to my hobbit hole I go. ⠀

Very appropriate use of "great" in describing/naming these lakes. Except for the case of Erie. I’ve yet to see anything that suggests it’s nothing more than a cyanobacteria-filled dump. #losdospogeys
With the end of summer 2017 (take a hint, air temperatures, and cool the F down), comes the end of the dissolved oxygen sampling for my Master’s research. If I said I was anything less than absolutely ~*~THRILLED~*~ I’d be completely lying. Smell ya later DO loggers

If you're going to [field] work all weekend, might as well be sampling bugs (indicators of water quality) in a couple former impoundments that have been returned to their natural stream patterns following #damremoval. Thanks for busting your ass, Sam.

*apologies for the shitty camera work, but I won't apologize for @instagram's shitty video quality*
Admittedly, we were pretty sure we’d see kokanee in Fishhook (see yesterday's post), but spotting this one lone chinook heading upstream in search of the great final hump was very unexpected and a total trip highlight. We ran up and down the banks, hung off a nearby bridge, and otherwise acted like a bunch of kids on Christmas morning trying to watch this guy.

While catching trout on the South Fork Snake was a whole bunch of fun, I was admittedly far more excited just to be able to watch these kokanee (landlocked sockeye salmon) - that just left Redfish Lake - making their way up the small, but beautiful Fishhook Creek, en route to spawning grounds.

#tbt a couple weeks ago. Second time ever on the fly rod seemed to be a success (many, many thanks, @aybchase). Landed a handful of native cutties while my pops and I floated the South Fork Snake River, ID with the @thelodgeatpalisadescreek.⠀

That Monday afternoon feeling when you think about how the work you do is pretty cool, but how following your pops and @ortizje through a lava tube in Craters of the Moon National Monument was way cooler. ⠀

Quick break from big river Idaho posts to check in from the banks of the not-big water Barretts Pond of Myles Standish SF. Quick little solo overnight while retrieving my dissolved oxygen loggers from a handful of sites in southeastern MA.

Not only stoked to just be in the land of big rivers, but also learning how to set emergence and sticky traps in the land of big rivers. Thanks @ortizje for teaching me your ways! #idahoisterribledontgothere #idahome #snakeriver #gradstudents #probablyshouldbewriting #aquaticecologists #losdospogeys #zaidaho
When some kids just so happen to light off a bunch of fireworks right as @namcghee pops out of the trees and makes his final push up April Fools, Lamentation Mtn. It’s too good.⠀

Pretty solid way to start the day, getting about a nice coastal 8 miler in. Can't believe I went for a run with @s.roy333 - you're doing great things, @lyseee10!
[Pano shot 1 of 3] The magic @cardomsob put together in yesterday’s photo – the Dix Range Loop as seen from Grace Peak. Started at Macomb, over to South Dix, hit the ridge out to Grace, came back to South Dix and continued on to Hough, and ended with the big Dix. An epic day, and very grateful the clouds lifted – the park treating us to some beautiful 360 vistas. Anything less than the pano just didn’t seem right.⠀
