THE EXPLOSIVE BEAUTY OF THE NW

One Rule: Everything Changes.

No, this isn’t the only region with snow on the mountains and this isn’t the only mountain.

The Cascade Range pops up like continental acne, fueled by ocean crust diving under the heavier land plates, melting, and voila, volcanos.

Capturing the power of geological force is one thing, capturing elemental force another.

Not far from Mt. St. Helens, the Trojan Nuclear Power Plant churned out electricity.

Columbia River water cooled the rods.

There goes St. Helens.

  1. Great shot

      I’ve always said the St. Helens eruption looked like an atomic bomb, but didn’t have a picture.

  2. This design is incredible! You definitely know how to keep
    a reader entertained. Between your wit and your videos,
    I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent
    job. I really enjoyed what you had to say, and more than that, how you
    presented it. Too cool!

      Spam or not, I like hearing about boomerpdx design from someone who calls themselves ‘learn to play guitar’ because I believe learning to play guitar is an incredible experience.

      And the name Nugent helps too. Anyone who loves the NW needs to know how to play a lick on guitar, or at lead a G, a C, and a D chord.
