Soil Texture Pool Party!

Hello world.  It has been requested...  no, demanded, that I write more stories from the field.  Of course, I must have pictures to accompany my stories and I still need to get the last group of pics off my phone so these are the only pictures I have to show you right now.  I honestly don't remember the order that things happened in anyway.  I mean, it's been 15 weeks since I started this whole field season deal, and quite frankly, my mind is shot.  Anyway.  Pool party!

One day, we were just like, screw this, we're going swimming!  So we did.

This is a lake.  I can't tell you which lake, but we swam in it.

I also have a picture of a person swimming in the lake but I might get murdered if that person finds out that I posted a picture of him in his underwears on the internet, so I'm not going to do that.

The next week, my boss gave me a bunch of calibrated soil texture samples and said that the students and I should have a soil texture party, so we turned it into a soil texture pool party.  Hey, he told us to do it. and we actually did texture soil.  We had a contest and everything. 

Here is where we had our contest.  The pool had some weird gross seaweed type stuff in it.  There were also cows.  Not in the pool.  But near it.  Just to clarify.

And here is where we swam.  The lower waterfall was particularly fun.
That is all.
