Above are the sister mountains to our volcano, the lava path is predicted to head south,, away from our town and into the farmland of the Skagit valley. Our town is fairly well protected - except for earth quake, ash, mud flow, which will send it right down into the sound. Denial is a wonderful thing.
This is the path, and that is our volcano. We are sandwiched in between two volcanoes, so , once the ring of fire gets lit, we may have to run away fast.
Yellowstone, on the other hand, will cover most of the States with three feet of ash and cause a volcano winter. And it is rumbling...
Last year I found some thick Gesso -experimented, thinking of Yellowstone and slapped it on some wooden boards in gooey peaks, dried, threw some paint at it and called it mud bubbles.
As children my brother and I spent a lot of summers in and near Yellowstone, before it became obscene with tourists and cars and mentally challenged people feeding marshmallows to bear from their car windows. I have not been back since, The change - too upsetting.
I will keep my profound, amazing memories in tact.
Our volcanoes are way overdue for a big belch. "Overdue" - maybe another million years,or so. Maybe next week...
We know nothing.
Apparently , the safest place to be on earth during earth's big shake off is the center of England, a bit north or Nottingham. Forget about moving there unless you are already an English person...The Queen will not let you.
She has run out of available sons and grandsons to marry...
This is another photo of the path of lava, and the volcano, Mount Baker. Mount Rainier will be most dramatic when it blows- just to the south of us in Seattle.
