Expeditions, Experimentation, Sheep, and Burros

We undertook some highly scientific experiments at the Ute Ulay yesterday, sending this extremely high tech exploratory pod down the mine shaft (through a systems of ropes, weights, and tubes that allowed us to stay safely far from the open shaft, please don't try this at home).

Then, on a stormy morning, we drove up to Engineer Pass for Sheep Day! We saw sheep, heard their bells, watched their guard dogs chase a pika, and ate some extremely delicious lamb stew. Luckily, we rushed back to Lake City just in time to feed carrots to burros. Tomorrow, we dig into a full day of work, together, and in smaller groups, fleshing out our ideas for the mine site.
