Album of Baker Vista Road Field Trip
Selected photos from the spider collecting field trip to sites along the Glacier Creek Road to Mount Baker Vista, Whatcom County, Washington, on 5 August 2008, with Della Scott and
Rod Crawford. Photos by both, as credited.
The trip was fairly successful for the time of year, though the lion's share of species came from the conifer litter. Rod had no camera on the 5th; his photos were taken of the same scenes but 9 days later. Della was just learning to use her new camera phone, so don't be too hard on her pictures.
