Mount Saint Helens

I grew up in central Alberta.  In 1980 I was 11 years old so I didn’t really understand the significance of the eruption of Mount Saint Helens.  My wife and I tried to visit there in about 1998 but there was low fog and rain so we just had to imagine what it would look like.  Last week we decided to meet some friends there and ended up seeing it on a gloriously sunny day and here are a couple of the shots from that day.

Mexican Beetle

It is hard to take a bad photo of an original Volkswagen Beetle.  They have at least as much character as any other car out there.  I am probably influenced because I grew up in the era of  Herbie the Love Bug.  In fact one of my childhood memories is of actually seeing a bug painted in Herbie colors on the way home from seeing “Herbie Rides Again” in the theater in about 1975.  Now I’m just babbling…

After the Fire

After spending a few days at Yellowstone National Park the kids were getting geysered (sp?) out so I set off on a whirlwind tour of the Norris Geyser Basin by myself.  On my hike to the basin I passed through this area burnt by the fire.  It was quite eerie walking through it but the sky was incredibly blue  which made it a great day for pictures.
