A Final Visit

I must admit that today is somewhat bittersweet. It’s a gorgeous day outside; it’s warm enough with a nice breeze to cool you off on occasion. There’s barely a cloud in the sky, and it’s clear that spring is finally here to stay. The school year is coming to an end, and while I’ll be […]

April is already almost halfway gone, and yet Vermont still can’t quite decide if spring is here. The weather has been rather inconsistent lately; I actually put this trip off last weekend because it had started snowing again. When I woke up this morning, the day seemed a bit more inviting, and I finally made […]

It’s the middle of March already, and that means a short break from all the stresses of college life. Though calling it “spring break” in Vermont might be a bit generous. I was able to spend the weekend at my family’s new home on the shores of Beebe Pond in Hubbardton, VT. The area is […]

The First Thaw

This February was particularly interesting. Temperatures rose into the fifties and sixties for a short time, resulting in the first, albeit short, thaw of the year. Now, temperatures have dropped back below freezing, and a layer of wet snow has fallen over the ground again. Regardless, it seems like the harshest parts of winter have […]

Winter and Weasels

After about two months, I’ve finally been able to return to my site at Rock Point. The landscape is both familiar and somewhat alien to me.

Wrapping Up the Year

I have to admit; I can hardly believe that 2017 is almost over. This semester is coming to an end, and soon I’ll be home, spending time with my family. Unfortunately, that means I have to wrap this up for now; I won’t be able to visit Rock Point again until I return in January. […]

A Trip Back Home

The fall semester is quickly approaching its end, and I finally had a chance to go back home and spend time with my family. Many of you probably think of Pennsylvania as a northern state, but I was immediately struck by how different the natural world is here compared to Vermont. Winter is already setting […]

After the Storm

Last weekend, Vermont endured quite an impressive storm. The remnants of a tropical storm came north, bringing rain and howling winds with it. Within in the city, it seems like little has changed; however, the effects of the storm are far more obvious out in the wilderness. Yesterday was my first chance to return to […]

Fall seems to have taken full hold at last. Temperatures have stayed lower this past week, reaching no higher than the low seventies. During that time, most trees have almost completely changed color. Some are still holding onto their leaves, while others have already shed the majority of their leaves. Both clearly stand out from […]

Fall Comes to Vermont

I have to admit, I’m a bit disappointed in myself for not making it out to Rock Point last weekend. Thankfully I was able to make the trip again today. First, I have one quick update from my last post. Last weekend, I had a chance to speak with Dr. Strong, Rubenstein’s resident ornithologist, and […]
