Air and Water

The air and water were crystal clear at Van Duzen Elementary School study site



Looking upstream to where temperature probe was planted, where I started my recon dive to see if there were trout.



Once underwater I saw a surprising number of trout that had survived the long dry summer-signs of resilience!



Close up of what could be yearling and two year old steelhead mixed in with native trout.


Other Worldly

Other-worldly looking algae with trout cruising. There is nothing like the lighting under water. Brisk 58 F but fine in my wetsuit.


Pool at VDES


Tiny Toad

Tiny western toads hopped all over the bar. Olympus TG5 macro zoom of young of year.
