Low-60s today, loving it!

I spent most of the morning in a car driving up north toward Twisp, WA after getting a report of a USFS wolverine trap signal going off last night (part of a North Cascades study). I’m working on wolverine surveys in the Central Cascades this winter, but not trapping. We’re hoping to do trapping next winter though, so any opportunity to be a part of, or at least see in person, the capture and handling would be really valuable (and fun). En route though we received word that the trap was empty (probably a pine marten slipping away). Bummer, but it meant I got back to Yakima at a reasonable time to enjoy the day.
