Farewell, Black Hills

The KT Crew is leaving South Dakota early Saturday morning. We dug, mapped, washed, screened, and observed so much. The things we came away with are an appreciation for all the brilliant and kind people who work here, a real love of science, and the greatest lesson of all--joy. Any day you're covered in dirt is a good day.

Many thanks to the people of The Mammoth Site, to readers who commented and shared, and to those who donated. All of you made this possible, and I really cannot thank you enough.
