Big Sur 2010
This was the second field trip I went on with Rick Nolthenius to the Big Sur site. I went down on a Thursday night by myself figuring I would get in an extra night of imaging. Once I got there I got the tent set up and then the flies descended. There were so many that I had to take refuge in my tent for the day. Thank goodness I brought a good long book to keep me busy. Here is a shot of Fred.

Our instructor, Rick Nolthenius. Rick does a wonderful breakfast of crepes on his field trips. Yum!

Some of the students. A lot of the students take Rick's classes thinking it will be a no-effort way to get their science requirements done. Rick's classes are all challenging and there's always a test at the end of these field trips.

Annie was in all of the Astro 9 classes I took with Rick. She worked at the computer lab on campus and was always helpful and a lot of fun!
