My 2009 field traverses in the Owyhee River study area

Yes. I am a little late on getting my NSF annual report done...why these are due 3 months before the end of the year in question is beyond me. Most annual reports are due within 3 months of the end of the contract year. I suspect that someone made a mistake in the original paperwork and simply won't own up to it. 

Anyway, getting the report together has given me a chance to organize my field data more completely. Here are the traverses from this year. This includes the group trip in late May, my field camp stint in early June, and a solo trip in August.

The utterly obvious concept of making a traverse map is made very simple with a Garmin 60csx, the DNR Garmin (free) software, and ArcGIS. But, hey, you already knew that because you record all of your field traverses that way, right?
