Long's Peak Revisited
Long' Peak
Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado
14,255 ft.
(approx. 3000 ft. above the tree line)

Long's Peak, ca. 1924

On July 19, 1924  Gerald Thorne "experienced the pleasure of visiting this spot... From the crevices less than a pound of coarse granite soil and roots of plants was collected, but from it over a thousand nematodes were secured..."
( Nematodes From the Summit of Long's Peak, Colorado -G. Thorne, 1929)

On July 29, 2000 Tom Powers revisited this spot, collecting similar coarse granite soil from the crevices, in order to compare the Long's Peak nematode population of 1924 to that of 2000.
