OK on the sporadic seismic appearances around Mt. Hood,
I didn't delve too deeply into the University of Washington
web site, in regards to it.  I think alot of people regard it as
potentially very dangerious though.

Ahhh yesss, Mt St. Helens....I made a trip there around 85,
such a pile of huge logs for many miles.  Rather unforgettable
when it blew in 80.  The learning channel on TV had a hour
program on it tonight, which I've seen before, but watched
again anyway.  Think the same channel had a show about
Kratatoa volcanoe and where they attributed alot of the dark
ages to its effects on Wednesday or Tuesday night.

The Columbia river is a sight to see for anyone also, huge layers
of lava all along the route.  Of course the dams with their
"fish ladders" viewing rooms is another must see.

The forests there in Oregon and Washington put the forests of
Colorado to shame....its so dense just about everywhere, one
could get lost just 50 foot into some of the areas.

Take care also,

Meredith Lamb
