    Forget the hornets nest, that's old news. Let's see your lava flows. :hilarious:

    Nice! Since I lived in Washington and I've visited Mt. Rainier several times, since I've touched the end of a glacier I thought I missed something in the news. Like Mr. Rainier erupted. Boy was I mistaken. The laughs on me. :):):)

    Mt. Saint Helens....now there was one devil of an event. Makes Rainier look like 'child's play'.

    I was fishing there on May 18th, the day it blew. I'll never forget it. I coughed for almost 5 months from all that ash. We were out in boats fishing, nothing biting and not a sound. When it blew we didn't hear a noise. The mountain on the one side was stripped of trees and the mountain sent the sound up and over us. We had dead silence but when the sound landed over a hundred miles to the north it broke windows.

    It was an unbelievable experience and one I don't wish to reexperence. I don't mind talking about it but no thanks to doing it again. I haven't even began to say what happened.

    I'd never want to experience such an event. Glad you're still among us, as I know the result was most devastating.

    Wow, it rained here yesterday & I found a fingerprint on a rain drop. I wonder if it's yours? What with the glaciers melting & climate change & all...:D:jawdrop::smuggrin::eek::rolleyes:;)

    That is a nice catch! I initially thought it was an avalanche, but on further review I think you're right about the lava, with a pyroclastic flow! :confused:;)

    Lava was my first thought but you could also be right about avalanche. ;)

    A lava flow and a avalanche can only occur at the same time for a short time as the heat from the lava tends to melt all that snow and ice in a short time. Lol

    Edited to correct spelling.

    The steam and gases you see are the result of fast melting snow and ice. Lol

    Any bets as to how long before people watch the saga of the "Lava flow Washington Quarter , worth $$$$$ " ...on Utube and flock here to collect. We will all remember who started it. Please no names for such , it will perpetuate the idea every small silly thing is worth a lot of money, and I will try to send them to the 'experts' . IMO, Jim

    Hey @Islander80-83, there you have it and from a mod to boot. Create a uTube video, name it and put it up for auction with a starting price of $10,000.

    I'm practically on the floor in tears just thinking about it and my wife thinks I've lost it.

    @desertgem, @Collecting Nut-

    Yes, I know. And then people will mass-produce it by putting drops of solder on the mountain. :hilarious:
