Wet Feet

During the forest inventory work at Kikori (see Living on a Log Raft and Chain of Custody), the tide would occasionally catch us in the middle of a transect and we had to count and measure trees in water up to our waist.  The villager on the left is estimating tree height with a clinometer, while his colleague on the right has measured back 20 meters from the sample tree with a fiberglas tape. Kind of fun, actually, although I always worried about snakes. [NOTE: The main problem was keeping my camera out of the water.  Most of the time, it and the clipboard with the tally sheets were balanced on top of my head].
