Spring finally here and Fieldwork Begins

Hello everyone.  Mommy and I finally got out in the field around April 8 after being delayed by snow and cold weather.  Last year we were working on February 28 - major difference in weather patterns.  The mountain snowpack is ranging from 180-230% of the annual average; guess we won't be hiking in the high country for a while yet.   We feel bad for the people in parts of Montana where it's flooding.

I'm helping Mommy loose the winter weight.  I love exploring around sandstone and shale outcrops, especially when bunnies pop out!  But my mean Mommy won't let me chase them.  Sometimes the bunnies startle her - I think it's funny!

Hugs, Miley
