Tule Lake is situated at the end of the world. It's not that it's so big that the world seems to end beyond its margins, but something more like how it is the place that worlds ended. The lake is located in Northern Californi...

Skittles a dog whistle choice to bring to mind Trayvon Martin.

Beyond that, it's the same type of arguments that were used on multiple occasions to keep Jewish refugees, even children, out of the US in the run-up to the Nazi final solution, and that were used to keep out Jews and other displaced persons after the end of WWII...

Froward Jason @JasnTru. This is actually the best possible response to @DonaldJTrumpJr's Skittles nonsense. I'm impressed. @SethAbramovitch @KateRoseMe @Skittles. James Reberry. 10m. James Reberry @jamesreb. @SethAbramovitch @dennisjromero Trump may piss off the Mars family now.

If you have been there and think that Hanalei Bay is the most beautiful place on the planet, don't worry, I'm not going to diss it. It is indeed one of the most beautiful places I can imagine. It's been the setting for numero...

Very lovely and informative blog post. We must never take for granted that beauty will always be the beauty we want it to be. Your warning is wise.

And it's been way too long locked away in an office and laboratory and lecture hall. I'll be hitting the open road with my students on an exploration of California's Cascade volcanoes for the next five days. We'll be seeing M...

So far I've seen 57 species on this short stretch of trail. There are lots more to be found.
I got back out on the Tuolumne River Parkway Trail this morning. There weren't many birds out, or otters for that matter, but I stopped a moment in a big clump of Elderberry bushes. I've probably found seven or eight species ...

Why should you learn about a place before you arrive? We start a tour of the north coast of Kaua'i
It's taken me awhile to get back to my Hawai'i series, but I'm intent on finishing the project. The main reason to finish is that apart from actual flowing lava (on the Big Island), Kaua'i is my favorite place to visit in the...
