This week, my group was Zach Johnson and Audrey Dufresne. We went out on 5/13/16. Its been quite hot recently, so that was no fun. It wasn’t terrible, but it certainly wasn’t pleasant. Most of the plants were large and healthy, but there were no monarchs. There was the brown skin of a caterpillar, but that was all. Sampling was relatively fast, but the heat made it slower. Overall, it was a pretty uneventful and standard trip.
