The date fast approaches when Matt and I begin our 90+ day field expedition spanning the Cascades and Rockies. On Tuesday of next week I will do some fun science outreach at White Pass High School in Randle, WA. On Wednesday, I will make a quick 3-day up to British Columbia to visit a single Saxifraga site near the Dog Creek Post Office. After attending the joyous wedding of Jessica and Seth, Matt and I will depart June 22 for Idaho, and onwards.
Here is our general timeline
