Students with Biltmore Sticks in Dry Forest

Large group of students at Santa Cruz, El Rincon (see What I Do), each with his or her Biltmore Stick (see Biltmore Stick), waiting to be divided into field crews so that they can count and measure several important tree species in the surrounding tropical dry forest. I'm the one with the Red Sox cap. [NOTE: Have no idea who took this photo. Maybe Miguel Alexiades (thx, Miguel)]? 


Misty Mountains and a Goat

Image shows the landscape around Santa Cruz El Rincon, Guerrero (see What I Do) where I have been working for the last couple of days. Somewhat rainy and the mountains are covered with clouds in the morning. Magical. Goat added for scale. [NOTE: I saw that dog again every morning when I walked over to the kitchen for breakfast. Don't think he remembered me].


Dog at El Rincon

This guy was waiting for us every morning in Santa Cruz, El Rincon (see What I Do) when we would walk over to the kitchen for breakfast. Never barked. Never looked at us. Occasionally a slight wag of the tail. Wonder how often he receives a random act of kindness? 


Pop Quiz

After everyone had finished making their Biltmore sticks (see What I Do), I had them line up and measure the diameter of a nearby oak tree. They were to measure the tree, but not tell anyone else what they got. When everyone had finished, we compared the results. Everyone was pretty nervous about this, but they (almost) all assigned the tree to the same 5 cm diameter class.
