A warm Provo spring welcomed twenty two Io researchers to BYU to discuss topics ranging far and wide across our favorite solar system body. The meeting was held in N-131 of the Eyring Science Center. We walked down the hill to Thai Ruby for lunch, drove up to Sundance for dinner in the Grill Room, and had a final night's dinner at the Bombay House. Day two of the meeting we drove south a couple of hours to the Black Rock Desert, a collection of fairly recent basaltic volcanics. We stopped at Tabernacle Butte to walk through a huge lava tube, up to a spatter rampart, across a lava pond, and up a surrounding tuff ring. Participants enjoyed being immersed in the Io analogue while walking around under overcast but comfortable skies.
