East, west, home is best

Dark Hollow Falls, Shenandoah National Park

I am SO glad to be home. I am very tired and I have poison ivy and mosquito bites galore. I have two more trips to make, a short one to IN and KY and a tiny one to the southwest suburbs. I've spent two days sending very diplomatic emails and begging for leaves from places I missed, and hooray for scientists because everyone's being very agreeable.

Checklist at the "nearly-finished" point:
Sites visited: 29
Basswood samples collected: 243
Millipedes collected (for labmate): 1
Miles driven: ~9200
Souvenir t-shirts purchased: 3
Weight: N+1 (booooooo!)
Cubs record: 56-37 (still best in baseball! woo!)
Bears seen: 1
Deer seen: 1,344,221,073
Dairy Queen blizzards consumed: 1 (Thin Mint... *drool*)

Pictures as always are here:

Bonus picture and inspirational message of the day!
