Photographer's Note

Let me start by saying I had no tripod to use and the wind made it difficult to even shoot. Those are the reasons I do not have a LP to put up here. I took some I will TRY to stitch but there is a big IF on them.

This is Mt. St. Helens that blew out her north face in 1980. Everything in the area is now alive again, just not the old growth forest of before. The work shop photo is a furry critter that wanted me to leave so he could cross the path.

I have new respect for those of you shooting such large subjects, it is very very much harder than it looks to be, my hat is off to you.

The place this is shot has an elevation of 4200 feet and the top of the mountain is at 8364 (it used to be 1300 feet taller). Even so it seemed I was looking up and not just over. There is snow all year on the glaciers inside the cone but in summer they are dusted with ash and dirt so they do not show as well. The rangers working at the station where this was taken said that this time of the year (fall) they see the mountain less than half the time due to the weather.
