On June 3rd, Jarred and I joined the Shoestring crew while they prepared for their summer research. After measuring out fertilizer to add to the plots next week, we stepped out of the lab to take a walk to the Saco River. While we were walking down the railroad tracks, I was surprised to see a big, black bear on my first day up at Bartlett. The crew scrambled for their phones to take pictures. While we did not get good quality shots, most of us were excited to see it and scared to get any closer. When we got too close it finally wandered back into the woods. After seeing the black bear, the sunset over the mountains, venison stir fry, rhubarb cake with ice cream, and talking about research I could truly say it was a good first day.
