cow pasture with a view
Lens: DA 60-250 @200 Camera: K1 Photo Location: Near Toledo, WA ISO: 6400 Shutter Speed: 1/6400s Aperture: F14 
Posted By: rvannatta, 04-16-2017, 10:12 PM

An image of Mt. St. Helens, some 37 years after the May 18, 1980 eruption which lowered the summit by some 1300 feet and triggered the collapse of the north flank ( on the left side of the mountain). This photo
taken April 16, 2017 (today) from a vantage point just east of the Jackson Highway a few miles north of Toledo, Washington, and perhaps 30 miles west of the mountain.

The prarie land in the foreground is widely used by quite a number of cattle feed lot operations. The foot hills are used
for logging and you can see a logged off area in the middle of the photo. And the Mountain--- well what can I say---it's
an active volcano----but not an ongoing one--- just every century or so it does something very bad

European settlers became common in the area in the 1840's and though it had apparently done a bad deed
shortly before then, it was generally treated as a dormant volcano until it blew up with a few weeks notice in 1980 and has
largely been quiet since thing
