I was told there's a dress code on the course, so I wore my Mexican dress

When the car rental company offers a free upgrade to a Jeep Wrangler, you say:
"Yes please, thank you"
and go driving in the mountains and play in the sunshine and snow

While in Vail, we did what we do everywhere and sought out good coffee. Luckily, we stumbled upon a long time industry pro's shop and roastery @vailmtncoffee! While Craig has owned and operated a coffee company for nearly 30 years, this storefront just opened last October.
They're sourcing some very unique coffees, serving delicious 100% Ethiopian spro, and bringing good coffee to their community.

Thank you for the conversation, the tour, the stories, and the coffee. We loved stumbling upon your shop in the Rocky Mountains.

Having one drink followed by 30 ounces of water and standing outside to have an actual conversation because it's too loud inside = realizing I'm getting too old to hang with the hip coffee kids at these things (while also reminiscing with old friends about random college events that almost got you in lots of trouble)

On Saturday night around 11pm, the new lava flow met the coastline and entered the ocean. It is now flowing freely across what was Red Road into the ocean from two points near Mackenzie State Park. This is the only road to take exiting some communities in Lower Puna. Last I heard, officials were looking to re-build an old road from the National Park's Chain of Craters road that was covered over by the lava flow two years ago. I haven't looked into it more since Sunday morning, so I'm unsure of what the current plan is or if it has changed.

As you can tell, this happens a lot. Lava is a normal part of life here and this community, in Pahoa, is used to it. That doesn't make it any less heartbreaking, but I say this to impress on everyone that this is NOT abnormal volcanic activity. The island is NOT in danger. So far, there has been a total of ONE INJURY over the last 18 days, when the first fissure opened spewing lava into the air. That's not bad.

Don't let the (inter)national news lead you to believe that the entire island is in chaos as it is consumed by Pele's lava. My family is currently visiting and the only impact this lava eruption has had on their plans is not being able to visit the National Park due to it's complete closure. We've literally been everywhere else.

If you want to do something productive to help those effected and at loss here, please follow the link in my bio to donate money. The current raised funds have almost all been used over the last 2 weeks to take three vans and one truck full of stuff to the Pahoa community. Water, tents, tarps, kids' toys, blankets, pillows, canned food, prepared foods, fresh fruit, and other non-perishables were donated both times and they need more tents and tarps. Those aren't cheap and they'd like to take another large haul of them over this coming weekend. So, please donate something to cover the cost of temporarily housing those who have lost their homes this month.

The lava is still going strong and the activity is pretty amazing to watch. There have been some gnarly live broadcasts happening all over social media via individual locals and established networks like @hawaiinewsnow
These have been my main source for updates that are not sensationalized, but truly depict what is happening. Is it devastating for this community? Yes. Is the entire island/state up in flames and possibly going to be covered in lava? Not at all. The effected area is about 10 square miles

Anyway, please consider donating to the cause to help out the effected community by following the link in my bio. My friends who have set up this fundraiser have been posting updates on Facebook and they are now in direct contact with volunteers at The Hub and at the shelters. They are receiving information on goods that are ACTUALLY needed versus blindly taking over van fulls of donations (ex. no more clothes or diapers are needed right now - they DO need more tarps and tents). So, they're contributing in effective ways.

**also just a friendly reminder to all my friends/family: I am not in danger here and live about 75 miles away from where this is all happening**

The lava is destructive and my heart goes out to everyone who has lost their home and those in danger of losing their home, but damn - you can't deny the beauty of Madame Pele and Mother Nature. These images, while terrifying in reality, are mesmerizing and incredibly humbling.

Just a reminder that my friends over at @pcr.coffee and @konadanceandperformingarts are doing a fundraiser for the folks and community effected by this eruption. They are also taking donations of canned foods/water/supplies over this weekend. So far, 35 structures have been lost; 26 of them were homes. Link to donate is in my bio. 📷 @usgs
