Adams Ranch 051

During my research, I also had the opportunity to assist on a different bear research project on a private ranch near Big Bend. We didn't catch any bears while I was there, but mainly because the bears had decided to stay in Mexico rather than making the trek back north to Texas. The hypothesis was that because it was a wet year, there was lots of food for the ebars to eat everywhere, so they were not having to move around as much to get the food they needed. This is a view of Mexico from the back porch of the ranch house. Storms pop up quickly in the desert and can be very dangerous if you aren't careful. I was very happy to have shelter on this evening, because flash floods that night showed us the power of the storm.
