Mount St. Helens Imagine a single event that can kill 57 people and 7000 deer and elk. Snap trees like a toothpick, and turn the sky grey for 15 days. Now, stop imagining, Mount St. Helens, in the Cascade Range of southwestern Washington State, erupted. On May 18th,1980. According to (Campbell
Volcanism of Long Valley, California: The Bishop Tuff Eruption The west coast of North America has been tectonically and volcanically active for billions of years. The Sierra Nevada Mountains in eastern California were born of volcanoes, and magma has been erupting in the Long Valley to the east of the mountains for over three million years (Bailey, et. al., 1989). However, the climactic eruption of the region occurred relatively recently in the region's geologic history. About 760,000 years ago, a huge explosion of magma warped the Eastern Sierra into the landscape that exists today. The eruption depleted a massive magma chamber below the earth's surface so that the ceiling of the chamber imploded, forming what is now known as

Stratum 3 in the Blue Mountain site lacks any evidence of settlement or subsistence; on the other hand, this could be evidence that the people who were there were nomadic rather than sedentary. The 4,534 debitage pieces and 234 cores suggest that it was a hunter-gatherer society and they used local obsidian which means that they could have had no contact with other people and likely did not travel very far. The majority of their tools were also made from the outer part of the cores.
Throughout history, great importance has been placed on the existence of God. Every civilization through time has sought some sort of reassurance that their is a higher being the watches over humanity. The evidence of this belief can be seen in the tombs of the Egyptians, in the sculptures of the Greeks and in the customs of the African tribes, among many other cultures. It seems that the existence of a deity is something that every culture comes to accept at some time or another. In "Would Tarzan Believe in God?", the authors say that, "...many cognitive scientists see the universality and pervasiveness of religious belief as suggesting that it is a natural feature of evolved human psychology." (Banjeree, pg. 1) There are none who would
Trip to Yosemite When I was in 7th grade, the whole entire grade suggested that we should go on a camping trip. We had many places to choose from, but we all agreed on going to Yosemite. The reason we chose Yosemite is because we wanted people to stay away from their video games and electronics for a couple of days and actually enjoy what beautiful things God had made and what the outside world has to offer. It was an amazing trip and we did have many unforgettable memories. But one memory I had was on the second day of the trip, it was the day we started to do activities with our group leader. We hiked up a waterfall, played some games, and also took lots of pictures. It was a very tiring day and when we were finally done for the day, It was
Yosemite area was formed by the action of tectonic movement and volcanic activity. It caused the heated magma that was below the pacific and the North American plate to be exposed (Yosemite National Park:The Kingdom of Granite and Glaciers). Further tectonic activity exposed the hidden magma exposing the valley. Yosemite Valley is cut from a granitic rock of the Sierra Nevada Batholith. Sedimentary and metamorphosed rocks, also known as roof pendants, comprise approximately 5% of the park’s landforms. Due to erosion on master joints, valleys, and later canyons are formed. The tendency of crystals in plutonic rocks to exfoliate, which acts on the granitic rock, is responsible for the formation of domes.
This painting is for the falls of Yosemite which looks very amazing with the water of the falls coming down and the two men enjoying the view. The colors are very attractive; the artist did a good job matching the colors to create a real picture. Yosemite Falls considered
He wrote several major publications on the topic, including his doctoral dissertation on Mount St. Helens. In 1991, while conducting avalanche research with volcanologists Katia and Maurice Krafft on Mount Unzen in Japan, Glicken was killed by a wayward pyroclastic flow. Glicken and David A. Johnston (who died at Mount St. Helens) remain the only American volcanologists known to have perished in volcanic eruptions. After Glicken's dissertation was published by his colleagues in 1996, the report was widely cited. His detailed and comprehensive work on flows at Mount St. Helens is considered the most
My novel “Hardy boys adventure_Peril at Granite Peak” is written by Franklin W.Dixon. In this book Frank and Joe spent their winter holiday for skiing. Because of the blizzard, they felt that is not a holiday, they lived in fear. This novel reminds me to one of the famous movie in 2015. In San Andreas, Deniel go to his office with his daughter-Blake at San Francisco. But that is a terrible trip because of earthquake and tsunami.
There appears to be three different veiws on climbing to the top of the Half Dome. Half Domes is a granite rock, 4,800 feet high and resembles a bowling ball cut into half. Half Domes is location in Marposa Calit and until cables were installed in 1919 was considered inaccessible. Now novice climbers can reach the top and are rewarded with aspiring views.
