Part of orientation to The Nature Conservancy is a trip to an ecologically significant place, with a 4-day conservation immersion course. My trip is to the San Juan Islands in Washington’s Puget Sound. On our way out there, we stopped by at the Conservancy’s Port Susan Bay preserve, which is one of the finest estuarine habitat in the Puget Sound.
At the last minute, I got invited to see Wicked in NYC. The performance happened to coincide with the close of The Gates in Central Park (by that guy who seems to have made a career out of wrapping things). Ran out of the show, which was about 6 blocks south, and managed to get some shots before dark.
