Humid hike up Mount Baker, .9 up .9 back perfect for my elderly dog Cormack (11yrs) to the youngest member of the pack Vader (1.5 yrs). Beautiful views of Saranac Lake and the surrounding High Peaks.

We spotted this beautiful moth camouflaged on the bark of an ash tree -- he's maybe an inch and a half long. Does anyone know what kind he might be?

Setting trail cams and checking out the local situation. Several caterpillars on box elder leaf.

Awesome view on an overcast day!

Learning how to post encounters during a NUN workshop while walking cross country trails around campus. Love me some Nature Up North!

One of my favorites times of year has arrived!  We are hosting the 5th annual teachers' workshop at Nature Up North today and tomorrow, and I always find it totally inspiring to collaborate with a group of dedicated North Country K-12 folks.  Let the fun begin!

Enjoying the greenery along the Grass River on the first day of August

Cloud covered day near the Grasse River, but the plants are reaching for any remnant sunlight none the less.

Nice nature walk setting up cameras.
