I live in an extraordinary place! In my last post on the Great Valley I was discussing our use and abuse of our most precious resource, one of the richest soils on the planet. Some 95% of the original ecosystem has been manipulated by humans to [...]

This is super short update for Bárðarbunga volcano. The lava field is now around 76 km² in size. I am getting slightly conflicting reports on the size of the lava field. I don’t know why that is. Lava … Continue reading

If These Cliffs Could Talk: Wa-ha'-ka, the Three Brothers Who Are All Out of Joint
