We have been making expeditions to the White Mountain Research Station since 2008. Projects there have included our experimental alpine cold frame, our bristlecone pines spiral grain project, our artificial hypoliths project, and a project surveying old stone shepherd’s huts.
About fifty students have participated over the years, most making the trip multiple times, as well as over a dozen parents and teachers from Sir Francis Drake High School. You can read about some of the trips here:

- Too much to list here! See the “What we learned” sections from our other 2008 – 2014 trip journals.
- One project leads to another once you get started. The cold frame project lead directly to our very successful Bristlecone Pine Spiral Grain Project and our Artificial Hypoliths Project, and now maybe to a new one.
