How we beat the summer heat in D.C.!


It's finally starting to feel like autumn in D.C. and the Bell Lab is feeling very quiet after a busy summer. Here are Bell Lab members and friends staying cool in the shade at the annual Smithsonian Staff Picnic and Folk Life Festival while debating how best to spend our Smithsonian monopoly money on food and libations. 


This is another one of my favorite photos from the summer: Mike, Dr. Billy Flint (James Madison University), Cerrie and Kyle searching for Plethodon dixi in Dixie Caverns during Type Locality Project fieldwork in Virginia.
