Belying

spirit-and-st-helens-4203

On my list of things that make launching before dawn worthwhile is the delight of flying down the pacific coast from Seattle and watching the volcanoes emerge from the mist as the veil of night is slowly pulled away. The warm glow of soft morning light gradually reveals the colors of the landscape and the shapes of volcanoes become more distinct as we pass over Mount Saint Helens. Overlooking Johntson’s Ridge and Spirit Lake, the blown out face of the volcano gracefully blends into the mountainside belying the violent moments of its evolution.
