Greetings From Paradise Tiera Is Taking Notes On

Greetings from Paradise.  Tiera is taking notes on samples collected for grain-size analysis and XRF/XRD analysis on top of the fluted cliffs of the Na Pali  coast of Kauai, in a quest to understand how weathering of the basalts renders them erodible.  Friends claim we are just using geology as an excuse to go hiking in Hawaii, but we deny it.
