Keep on Keepin´ On

Saturday was another day of working on the north side of the river. More driving, stopping, and recording GPS and land cover characteristics.  Thrilling, I know.

I just hope I’m not caught out in the middle of it.  Thank goodness for the waterproof camera, but I’m worried about the data and my GPS unit. Keep your fingers crossed!
