Back from the Field ... and into a busy week

I am back from our trip into the Mountain West - and it was great (see some of the pictures below). We hit Yellowstone, the Grand Tetons, the Tobacco Root Mountains, Glacier and Craters of the Moon - and the weather held out on us just fine.

This week is the last week before classes start here at Denison, so post might be a little sparse this week ... and next week will bring something big to Eruptions, so stay tuned. I'll try to post some news soon as I get caught back up with what has been happening (including all the Katla talk). Special thanks again to Boris Behncke for the great Etna series. Be sure to check it out if you missed it.

In the meantime, here are some highlights from our vacation. Enjoy!Click on the images to see a larger version.
