Spent last Saturday poking around the burn site of the High Park Wildfire in the Colorado Rockies – Collected a bunch of samples for an upcoming study and got a much better idea of the climate and hydrology of the area: Flew out there expecting to grab only 2 samples … Returned home with 11.
I will certainly be kept busy this summer!!
My new favorite study spot: Alaska Coffee Roasting Co.
They have 2 locations: 1 in Fairbanks, AK and 1 in North Miami, FL (weird, right?)
They roast their coffee on site (I’ve had 3 different kinds already and love them all) and serve up some amazing sandwiches. I can’t wait to meet Jim for lunch there someday so we can try one of their wood-fire pizzas!
I spent about 7 hours there yesterday grading a giant stack of lab reports and studying for my last final ever. In a city where nearly every coffee shop is a chain, this little cafe is a welcome breath of fresh air :)
