Alabama A&M's Plant and Soil Science Department does lots of interesting
field work so I'm not surprised a herper from there wound up in China... he
probably works for Yong Wang in that department, who oversees some excellent
field research. And when you come back we should definitely spin around the
Paint Rock system. The easternmost branch is Hurricane Creek now part of a
new state park called the Walls of Jericho. It's a whole day commitment to
visit either by hiking in or getting permission to drive in on a really
rough road, but well worth it. I know that Casper is up for going back;
certainly anyone on this list would be deeply impressed by Hurricane Creek.
