In a few days I'm taking off for Ecuador to climb high volcanoes, check out the jungle, and improve my Spanish. Adios amigos! I'll be back sometime in June. At that point I'll be heading into the wildernesses of southern Colorado to perform botanical studies. Volunteers who can handle abject abuse (15-20 mile days sometimes, high altitude, alpine exposure, primitive living conditions, etc.) are actively being sought.  :D

Hopefully the moisture situation in the south improves, in terms of hydrological health, fire prevention, and a good botanical showing over the summer. Looks like consistent t-storms are hitting CO two months before normal throughout this week.

I'm looking forward to some botanical pictures, as long as I don't have to count sepals or bracts.

Well...we both may be puzzling together. I don't know crap about tropical taxa.

I should be able to grasp the CO flora pretty well, though.

Had to put that through a translator. My Spanish is pretty bad. My favorite translation was:

"They have an impressive shot and one does not forget that the mushrooms are the jesters."
