New at Rosetta Stones: So Much for the Trees….


We’re back to Mount St. Helens. Yay! We’ve reached the part of our story where the trees have a very bad day. For many of them, it was their last.

Is it horrible of me to be glad? I mean, yes, terrible that majestic old forests got destroyed, but… visible geology!

Lovely visible geology at Mount St. Helens. Look at those bare ridges! And you can see Mount Adams! September 2011.

    I have been loving your entries on Mt St Helens, both from the perspective of a layperson with an interest in (but barely functional knowledge of) geology and because it’s a walk down memory lane.

    As I recall, there were some small trees which survived in otherwise devastated areas because they were completely buried in snow.

    Add me to the list of those eager for a book!
