Rattlesnake Hike 7/12/2010
We hiked about 3.5 miles to the top of Rattlesnake Mountain in Rumney NH. When we got to the top we ate our lunches. There was a mud pool. We found that the pH level was 4.5, and the temp was 80°F. Nick fell in and it was really funny. He was all mud. We also saw many trees such as red oak, sugar maple, hemlock, white pine, red maple, tripe, and witch hazel. When we finished our hike, we headed to the Baker River.
We walked Fox Pond on Sunday which is not far from the college. Once we got there we tried to catch some organisms. We had some people use the plankton tow which you use to catch microscopic organisms in the water. We caught some frogs and even a dead fish! We had fun catching larvae and crawdads (crawfish) and our day ended.
We went to the Pemi River today and it was a great time. We had to cross the river to get to the other side. We were walking down the beach we found a snake. Two people got bit but it didn’t hurt.

After we went to Walter Newton we went to Livermore to swim. We hung out on the sand and in the nice refreshing water. We Watched the falls that were huge and meaty. Amy had found a little pool in the rocks that was formed from erosion. I swam in it. It was pretty deep and it was kinda tight so it was hard to swim in.
After we went up Rattlesnake we went to the Baker. We swam for about an hour and we just hung out. We found a rock that you could jump off and do a trick. It was a cra-z day. The pH level was 4.5 and the temp was 78°. We had a good time swimming at the Baker River.
We went downtown on Thursday and found biotic and abiotic things. We had to find something that was biotic in the ground. We walked around and got pictures of everybody with their plants. Some people had big plants and some people had small plants. After all the fun finding biotic and abiotic things in the ground we went swimming. We went swimming in the Pemi River and had fun. We saw a little pug named Maggie that was a rescued dog from a meany.We watch her play as people swam and just relaxed. Nick and I saw these huge rapids that we thought we should go down. We did it but right where you get near the islands it gets really shallow and it hurts your body. We walked back to the dorms and got changed then we went to Boyd and did work.Downtown Ecology
