with Glaucia Del-Rio, Marco Rego, and Fabio Schunck. Beginning around mile marker 51 (with a moderately large lake adjacent to the road to the south), we continued eastward until reaching the large lake where this hotspot pin is located. Habitat here was marshy tundra ponds surrounded by short willow (?) scrub, I believe. Sunset at probably 10:55 pm, but birds were still very active at this late hour. Partly cloudy, and cooling off with a light breeze. Buggy with lots of mosquitoes.
