just a couple more of the Mt. St. Helens area, then i'll stop, i promise! :lol:these have had virtually no PP done, other than resizing and a touch of contrast, so they're a bit hazy.

this one shows the mountain with Castle Lake to the right. the riverbed in the foreground is the Toutle River, which became one giant mudflow when the mountain blew its top...



this one is looking up the Toutle Valley toward the mountain in the background... you can see where the north side of the mountain blew away and the melting snow and mud flowed down from the flank of the mountain right into the Toutle...



and the last, a view down the Toutle Valley. you can clearly see that the river bed itself is still little more than dried ash mud, even after 25 years. the valley floor was swept clean of vegetation, trees -everything - by the huge lahar that swept down the valley. it still has not recovered...



okay... no more pics of St. Helens... i promise!! :G

Nice shots. Are these from one of the viewpoints along the Johnson Ridge highway?

Nice pics! Wow, these landscapes are really making me anxious to get the LX1 that I've pre-ordered. I keep imagining such photos in 16:9 format. Sorry, don't mean to distract from the great shots. I was just tkinking.

Enjoy life!
Steven

Dean,

Yes, these are from spots along the way to Johnston Ridge, though the last two were not taken from "official" viewpoints. the drive up highway 504 is very scenic, and on a sunny summer day the views are pretty spectacular...
