 Mount Hood
Mount Hood is one of the major volcanoes of the Cascade Range.  Geologists have shown that it has erupted repeatedly over the past hundred of thousands of years most recently just before the Lewis and Clark expedition in 1805.  Scientists and nearby citizens wait in awe and fear for its next reuption, which will likely alter the face of the land severely.

Special Saturday

I don’t intend to post on here over the weekend, but felt inclined to post something special for Saturday.  This postcard took a bit of an extra journey.

This postcard was supposed to come to me in CT from China via postcrossing. However, it showed up in an envelope with a note.

Katie, This card found the way to my mailbox in New Hope, PA. I am sending it to the address on the card in hopes that it will find the person it was intended for (perhaps the post office will do better this time). As I plan to travel to China during the last part of June, I was captivated by the stamps; particularly the Chinese Sturgeon. It looks very formidable in the picture, but is unfortunately an endangered species with small numbers left in the Yangtze River.  Michael
