Field work on Tuesday, July 9

Last week I had blogged about my pursuit of a snow sample. This week I hiked high and deeper into the drainage to find some snow on the south side of the third Mud Lake that was north facing. The snow was dwindling quickly but we were able to obtain a good sample. This sample is important for my project, I want to draw a connection between snow chemistry and the lake water  that is so dependent on snowmelt and runoff. During this day in the field we collected snow samples and also hiked even higher to get to the fourth lake so that we could collect readings with the hydrolab in all four of the main Mud Lakes.
