    Default Mount St. Helens - Chehalis Washington

    I flew to Oregon/Washington to attend a meeting with a customer. The property is situated on 300 acres of primeval forest with thousands of acres of private forest surrounding it . Moss and lichen everywhere along with the most beautiful trees. I fully excepted to see gnomes come out of hiding and maybe Big Foot at my cabin door,
    You can view St. Helens from one side and Mount Rainier from the other. The photo below was taken at sunrise from the cabins front porch. I was awe-struck!

    Me at Multanomah Falls, Oregon, Unreal beauty - 611-foot tall. I was wet after about 15 minutes of walking from the spray.

    So beautiful and peaceful. Can't imagine the destruction she caused when she erupted.

    They told me stories at the property of the day it erupted. Pure devastation for those closer to the mountain. It didn't help that I watched a PBS show on the worlds deadliest volcanoes The night before I left. both Mount St. Helens and Mount Rainier are two of the deadliest.

    Wait until Mt Egmont, Mt Tarawera, Lakes District or Lake Taupo (Supervolcano) erupt here, they are all overdue. And guess what?! I live about 2hrs tops from ALL of them!

    Last time Taupo erupted, the pyroclastic flow went about 200km NORTH of us, thats about 470km north in total from the crater, and about 200km in all other directions. That data is going on the contact metamorphism of the rock that has been found. Marble was created when the intense heat of the flow met limestone.

    When Tarawera (Maori for 'Burnt Peak' (Tara-Peak, Wera-Burnt)) erupted, it buried 3 or 4 villages completely in mud and ash, andthe pop was heard over 3000km away.

    The potential destruction from Taupo is many times more than St Helens produced in the 80's, but boy, if Yellowstone heaves, then the entire Cascade range, and probably the whole Cascadia and maybe the San Andreas faults will go.

    lol this is interesting, sorry if i scare you

    If Yellowstone goes...live as we know is over. That program I watched scared the hell out of me. Not for me but my kids.
    I know you folks in NZ are setting on a hotbed of activity. It is all very interesting but deadly. They always say not "if" but "when" !
    Jordy, I bet you can google that show and watch it. I think it was Nova that had it on one of my local PBS stations. They normally have them online to watch - full length
