Powell Expedition Article - the other Powell

Here's an article about JW Powell's sister who was a botanist.

Botanist Ellen Powell Thompson—yes, that Powell!

Enjoy!

Thanks Andy, great article. What we take for hardship is just another day in the office for them, pounding the wilderness, into an understanding that we can all benefit from. Botany takes a sharp eye and to accomplish what she did is quite incredible and with just a pencil and paper. Imagine being in big white water with just one oar, and all you can think about is, what's for dinner and a cold one.
