We saw no evidence on the faces or wings of the tricolors here that we swabbed.

End of the hallway... the rest room (not potty room) but to rest... then back out to the entrance about 3/4 mile away... Glade Entrance. But before we left we swabbed 15 myotis on the way out for signs of WNS. Andrew has a great start for a science project here.

A picture of the vials we used... put a 12 in. Q-tip into the container.. pull the water out... roll it across the bat's nose and arm... return Q-tip to container... break it off and seal the container. We then moved to the entrance (Glade/Homestead entrances). Where as Duane then finds out he left his camera in the car... stupid Duane! :) While John was taking temperature in the main room right at the entrance, a piece of ceiling broke loose and crashed right next to him... just missing him.

2 hours later we exited out of Stovepipe exit. Mel is seen exiting. John brought up the rear and we were all out. Now we'll send the samples out to the lab and see if we're still in the clear! Mel and Andrew are both glad we are out and ALL done! Now time for some calazone's at Lugi's at Blair, OK! Thanks gang for a great count!
