photos and descriptions add so much to the location pages for the Chamisa Trail and Dale Ball Trails near Santa Fe … they create a context, and then clicking on the “Observations at this Location” relates the sites to the organisms found there … very nice!

it was a pleasant surprise

I was expecting nothing, but found an incredibly rich lichen flora. I don’t know how I’m going to get all my specimens home to put under the scope! :) Lovely trail, lovely area.

the hiking trail of my youth! i picked up an Agaricus pinyonensis there last time i walked it. there’s a good chance you passed my dad somewhere along the path.
