Teton Snapshots

Update 8/15/11- Top of Sleeping Indian (11,238 ft)

Hi All,
My job is going very well here in Jackson. My position has been extended through the fall, so it looks like I will be here a while longer! I have been working on many cartography and wildlife biology projects here. In the office, I have been working on putting together a geodatabase of roadkill events in Wyoming over the last 30 years. The Department of Transportation has been keeping track of mileposts of roadkill sites, and now we're georeferencing those points to a map to better understand roadkill hot spots and deer migration corridors. I have also been mapping movements of GPS-collared mule deer as part of another big Department of Transportation contract. We've also been conducting some baseline habitat/property maps and inventories for conservation easements in the next county over. This involved lots of fancy mapping analyses, and a little ATV-driving across the sage desert. Also in the last month I've set up cougar camera traps, bear-hugged a trumpeter swan, hunted for songbird nests, netted song sparrows, surveyed for pikas , and radio-tracked mule deer. And that was work! In my free time i've been doing lots and lots of hiking, rock climbing, camping, and white-water rafting. If only the summers were longer here!

Apologies for the lack of updates. I haven't had my camera around much, and was waiting for enough decent photographs before posting a new entry. Here is a little album of snapshots from around Teton County. Enjoy!

  1. You are very good at taking photographs. I enjoy the last one, with the redish orange shape of the rock in the foreground.
