We are heading home tomorrow after a long two weeks of field work. We all put in many hours and collected valuable data, which we will spend the next year reviewing. We will return to NASA Ames with many fond memories (and a few sunburns).

Thank you to Barbara and Wendy, two incredible Lava Beds National Monument rangers who have been so instrumental in making our second field campaign go smoothly. Thank you to Kathryn Lacey for the delicious food and moral support. And thank you to this year’s interns: Cindy Nguyen, Rison Naness, and Julia Chen.

Many more exciting things to come!
