Rugged Terrain of Mt. St. Helens

Rugged Terrain of Mt. St. Helens

The most fertile lands were built by the fires of volcanoes - Andrea Gibson
30 Years later, Mt St Helens is still recovering. It was interesting to read that time of the day (8:32 AM local time) and the season play a lot in its recovery. Many nocturnal animals were already bedded down for the day and so were more likely to have been protected in burrows and to have survived the explosion than their neighbors up and about during the daylight. You just don't think about that; that's a chance event – But then nothing else is by chance either :)
