Photo of the day: Carly Rowland, Citizen Scientist

Volunteers do all kinds of amazing jobs at Mount Rainier National Park, and occasionally, as the park's volunteer coordinator, I get to unlock the ankle restraints under my desk and go out and join them in the field! This was one of the most extraordinary days for doing so all summer: surveying butterflies for long-term climate chage studies along the Wonderland Trail east of Sunrise, at the head of Berkeley Park. Here's one of our volunteers, Carly Rowland, waiting for the project to begin at the start of the transect. I love the light, a beautiful combination of direct and reflected light, all of it natural; and she has a wonderful smile, too.
