Nice one, big skies out there.

Just wet and horrible here, grey cloud, nothing to photograph there.

You're right! The snowpack in California is miserable so far this year, in the range of 15% to 25% of average  :(

Fortunately it's pretty quiet compared to other Cascade volcanoes. Lassen (closer to me) blew in 1915 and that has fumaroles, steam, boiling mud puddles etc.

a mountain of that size has obviously erupted many times in the past...so it will do again one day...yes?

Yes, Shasta is officially "potentially active" and Lassen is "active", I doubt either one will pop in my lifetime. A bit farther north in the Cascades Mount St. Helens erupted spectacularly as recently as 1980.

we have a volcanoe here that when I was at school I was taught it was dormant
now they have discovered it has eroded away to nothing and then re formed (current 8000ft high) and then eroded away again and reformed multiple times over a very long period!
(and which is where we get our black beach sand from)

I remember when mt st Helens blew.  Im about 4 hours east of it. Felt it, then a light coat of ash covered everything.

Now mt Rainer is a different beast at 14,000 feet.
