today i went to work with sean. the task was to climb trees and record data about old fisher dens in tree cavities. we hiked in and used a GPS locater to find the specific trees sean and his coworkers had identified. sean climbed and measured (top photo), i recorded data. then i got to try a bit of climbing myself, which was fun and HARD! in this case, you don't actually climb the tree as much as shimmy up the ropes using a variety of carabiners and specialized contraptions. i think i need to do more pull-ups.
