I headed out into the field today. Typically I do not like to have snow obscure my views of the ground. But given the time constraints on the project and expected weather for the site, better now than later and the snow cover was just thin enough that I was able to figure out the ground once I got into the evergreen stands. Just wish the sleet had held off and then there was also an unexpected detour.

This beaver dam caused a bit of a detour
This steep slope is a result of a river down cutting into a huge landslide deposit.
Soils were full of angular chunks of rock
