Pine Barrens Treefrog

The Pine Barrens Treefrog, Hyla andersonii (Hylidae) is a Near Threatened species native to the United States. These frogs are bright green with plum or lavender stripes bordered by white running along their sides. On the inner femur and on the groin there are patches of orange, which are concealed when they are in resting/sitting position.

In recent times, many pools which provided a habitat for Hyla andersonii have been drained or dried up and they no longer have a place to live. The only way to preserve this species is to protect the area of the Pine Barrens on the eastern coast of the US. Another endangerment is DDT. There now remains only three main concentrations of the Pine Barrens Tree Frog, the largest of which is in New Jersey.

The tops of basalt columns emerge from the ground and create a natural cobblestone floor at Kirkjugólf in Kirkjubæjarklaustur, once thought to be the ruins of a man-made church. Nope, just geology.

I was doing some field work recently in eastern Nevada, near the small town of Panaca.  The valley floor there hosts some interesting Tertiary lake sediments that exhibit differential weathering.  This feature is known as Window Peak.  It consists of a number of different layers of thinly bedded lake sediments, some containing variable concentrations of diatomite.  It’s also used (obviously) as an ATV track.
