Elizabeth Miller (Stanford U) and John Dilles (Oregon SU).  Bike to the outer playa to contemplate the history of this place we call home, from the deep time geologic framework to the ice ages, first human inhabitants in the region, post-glacial warming and the raw chant and inexorable warming of the Anthropocene era.  Burn baby burn!  P.S.
