Magma Rising

Mt Si's Magma Column

Check out the Magma Column on the Western side of Mt. Si

(Directly above the words “Check out”)

Of course the other three points are also from volcanic activity, but it is rare to see the actual column after so many years, almost pushing its way out the front… still to this day. It had a peak at one time, I would guess, but when you look closely you can see its been cast to the four corners of the Earth.

I live for the day that Mt. Rainier blows, praying I’m sitting on top of THIS mountain, my mountain, Mt. Si, so I have a front row seat to the most spectacular eruption of our time. Most likely I’ll get covered by a foot of ash and suffocate, but what a way to go, eh? lol  What a show!

That and I’ve always longed to watch Yosemite blow…

one can always hope  Smile

Weekly Photo Challenge: Mirror

OK… so I’m going to be upfront here… I’m cheating!!  LOL  These are all pictures I took in the past, but when the prompt came up “Mirror”, well, I just had to pull up some of my favorites!  I love a good reflective shot!  They should be postcards, don’t you think?

I snuck a few oddballs in too, just for fun.

Hope you enjoy my mountains! Smile

My beautiful Mt. Si is on fire, folks, and I’d truly appreciate it if….

ALL MY FOLLOWERS WHO ARE BELIEVERS IN ALMIGHTY GOD SAY A QUICK PRAYER THAT THE FIRE BURNING ON IT’S EASTERN SIDE IS PUT OUT TONIGHT OR TOMORROW AT THE LATEST!!! 

Not only do I live within 3 miles, but many of my friends live at the base of it, and its been protected from logging since I moved here 20 some years ago!  So it has LOTS of dead natural DRY wood and it’s been really dry here lately!  I LOVE THIS MOUNTAIN and it would be devastating to see it destroyed!

so please, take a moment, and say a quick one for me!!!!

thanks!

Mt Sigh

scarred by winds he looks up into blue

wrinkles weathered into stone

arching with an aching crack

rising slowly he stands alone
