After taking a driving tour of the Nails Creek Unit of Somerville Lake State Park for First Day Hike, I stopped in at the Headquarters before leaving. Glad I did, because I ran into the "new" Somerville Lake State Park Complex TPWD park ranger Lisset Monteagudo. We had sat beside each other at a wildlife conference last year in Caldwell. I am looking forward to seeing more of her in the future with my TMN chapter members. What am amazing smile she has!

As a Texas Master Naturalist, I volunteer weekly at the S. M, Tracy Herbarium at Texas A&M University in College Station. I get excited when I see a voucher collected by someone I have met personally or one of someone famous in the field of botany. Today, when I saw this one collected by S, M. Tracy himself in 1903, a hundred and twenty years ago, I decided to document via iNat my finds. Perhaps not a purpose of iNat, but it brings happiness to me.
Photos 2 and 3, taken 07-31-2023 are of a specimen and its label collected by Reverchon in June of some unspecified year.
Photo 4, taken 6/19/2023 was collected by someone unknown to me, but as I was going through cabinets, inspecting and repairing vouchers as needed, this one just struck me as being an especially attractive specimen. So, I took a photo.

Photo 5 shows one of the annotation labels of @eric_keith I glued to several specimens while volunteering at the herbarium.

Today was a great day. Not only was the weather glorious, but the Tonkawa Tribe of Oklahoma purchased Red Mountain (formerly Sugarloaf Mountain) from the Herzog family. In the future, the historic and sacred site will be protected in perpetuity and made accessible to the public to see and experience for generations to come with the help of the El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail Association. Photos are of the speakers at the ceremony held at Sugarloaf Bridge near Red Mountain: The eldest member of the Tonkawa (85) → Dave Cunningham, local historian and agent instrumental in arranging for the purchase of the property. → Mr. Herzog → Steven Gonzales, Executive Director of El Camino Real de los Tejas National Historic Trail Association → producer of Tonkawa video → Russell Martin, President of the Tonkawa Tribe → Sec/Treas of the Tonkawa Tribe.

I realize this may seem to be a superfluous observation, but this project has emphasized the effect we as humans have had on nature over thousands of years.

Chip Ruthven, Matador WMA Wildlife Biologist at the Socially-Distant BioBlitz. Chip was an awesome source of information about the area. For one thing, I now know that vultures migrate.

(Wonder if he is kin to the Lee County Ruthven family?)

Was pleased to meet @catenatus and his wife Amber at the October Timberlake BioBlitz. His profile is one of the most interesting of those I have read on iNat:

@brentano One of my favorite iNat folks. Was wondering how many more steps I would watch let him take on the ledge before I hollered at him for safety's sake.

@ Palo Pinto Mountains State Park (with special permission to access the property). Park is still closed to the public.
Unbelievably dry, but I saw new Texas territory and observed its flora and fauna.

Met up again with the knowledgeable and fun iNat person Andy Newman at the Texas Bryoventure III with Dale Kruse, curator S.M. Tracy Herbarium, TAMU at the Big Thicket National Preserve.
Andy also got sidetracked by vascular plants.

This is one of the most devastating days of my life. I learned this morning that my El Camino Real Texas Master Naturalist hero, mentor, and friend has terminal liver cancer and is in hospice care.

Katherine Bedrich aka @doodlebug has taught, encouraged, and inspired me since we met in January, 2011.

Today, I have finally been entering the observations I made alone on the El Camino Real Trail last October and remembering the good times we had "on the trail" and elsewhere. The documentation of the flora on this Historic Trail through Milam County has been one of her passions.
So, as I entered a lichen observation, I thought of the photos I have taken of her peering through her loupe (and telling me to get my camera out of Auto Mode). My photo of her won me a 1st place at a TMN state conference.

KB is another of my iNaturalist "Favorites" collection.

Eric Hunt is another super iNaturalist I was priveleged to meet in person at the Mini Big Thicket BioBlitz in October 2016. He traveled all the way from Arkansas.

Super-helpful and really likeable fellow. I learned a lot from him on the Sunday trip to the Canyonlands. (Sorry for the awful highly cropped photo!)
Again, this superfluous to some observation is my way of documenting the icons of iNaturalists I have met in person and placed in my Fave's list.
Note the location of the photo is the Visitor's Center at the Big Thicket National Preserve but was entered as the parking lot of the motel where many attendees stayed in order to not skew the results of the BioBlitz.

Another super iNaturalist! I was honored to have met nathantaylor7583 (Nathan Taylor) at the October Bioblitz. Nathan has ID'ed many Euphorbia observations for me and others (i.e., his speciality) and he is a super helpful, intelligent and good-natured young man.

The photo shows him in the pose I most observed him assume during the weekend outings ... getting down on the ground to get a photo of the species of interest.

I blatantly changed coordinates to the motel where many of the iNat folks stayed in order to keep this observation from being automatically added to the Big Thicket BioBlitz projects. Photo was actually taken in the Big Thicket near Kountze, TX, but I really did see Nathan in the motel parking area later that day.

Another "trophy shot" to add to my Favorites list.

This is another of my blatant "Trophy Observations" of an iNaturalist Powerhouse.

In the top 5 on the Leaderboards for Nov 2015 observations, species, and identifications, he is an interesting and really nice guy.
I think he is the first scuba diver I have met that takes underwater photos! Wow!

This guy is a genuine, bonafide, home-grown Texan that I, as a small-town Texan, immediately "took a liking to"... He is the kind of person I want as a friend or neighbor...
And... we both confess to being "self proclaimed absolute iNaturalist addicts".

Hope to make it up to his area of Texas to the LLELA (Lewisville Lake Environmental Learning Area) for a visit soon.
Another great iNat observation for me!

Two years ago on Nov. 22, 2013, I added my first four observations to iNaturalist.org.

One of these, a monarch caterpillar (http://www.inaturalist.org/observations/465471),
was promptly identified by @robberfly.
I could say that he is one of the reasons I am addicted to iNat.

I am pleased to be able to add robberfly's photo to verify that I was fortunate to meet him. Great guy!
(By the way, my other three initial observations were IDed by @greglasley.)

I have emailed many really stupid questions about navigating on iNat and @kueda was always patient and helpful.

This is another treasured and "Favorites" observation of a fantastic iNaturalist!

I had the privilege of meeting gcwarbler (aka Chuck Sexton) and joining a nature walk with him at Granger Lake.

Churck is another iNaturalist friend that has been of immeasurable help to me. Wonderful person, regardless of what Greg Lasley might say!
(By the way, Chuck does favor his great-grandfather.)
Note the T-shirt he was proudly wearing, sambiology, in the second photo!

One of my favorite Texas Parks and Wildlife people, Wildlife Biologist Tim Siegmund has helped educate, guide, and encourage me as a Texas Master Naturalist and as a small acreage landowner. (Although I was born and raised Milam County, TX, I do appreciate his Lee County, TX roots.)

Photo taken at Burleson Prairie in Bell County.

Look under my "Favorites" tab to see some of the great iNat, TMN, and other amazing human beings I have met over the years because of iNat.

Came across this photo of GREG LASLEY, one of my favorite iNat folks, and HAD to include as an observation. Realizing it may be "frivolous" info to some, I want to document how much help he has been to me and so many iNaturalists.

GREG LASLEY went above and beyond to fulfill his promise to speak to my Texas Master Naturalist chapter in Milam County, Texas on this date. This photo of GREG LASLEY was taken in Rockdale,Texas, while he was sharing his observations, experiences, and photographic skills with my El Camino Real Texas Master Naturalist Chapter.

Thanks, again, Greg.
