Lauren and I hiked the desert this evening over by Peña Blanca. The solitude and sparse beauty of the desert is oddly both calming and unsettling. @NMSU has been studying desertification @TheJornada since 1915, which is also the site of @NSF 25 year LTER Network.


It’s a beautiful day for a custom field trip @KelloggBioStn @KBSLTER with high school environmental science students @glbluedevils with Mrs. Alpuche
