We met the students at 7am (so early!) on Saturday for a field trip about 2 hours north towards Durango. We were in a beautiful area with sandstone outcrops, lots of cactus, acacia (catclaw) and mesquite. Unfortunately we didn't really see anything - we ended up with 2 lizards for the whole day - though we did find 2 road-killed snakes on the highway home. Unfortunately, we didn't put on any sunscreen - and with the sun at our back all morning - the backs of our arms and necks got fried!
