Photos from the field: July 2014

Writing, field work, travel, and my latest obsession, trail running have all led to a pretty good summer so far. While it hasn't made for much time to blog about science, my own or others', I've met some great scientists, athletes and new friends while sharing new experiences, academic and athletic with my old friends and family. While I get ready to write up some PR on my most recent papers, here is a photo- teaser from July 2014 in Arizona, Utah, Idaho and Washington State. Hopefully we'll have a rocking August of data collection and big runs as I prep for

So. Pumped. This paper was first submitted elsewhere in March of 2013 and got some really good reviews along the way. Hopefully in its best form as it goes to press.
