Volcano and Stars

This is a really lovely picture.

In some ways I'm kind of sorry that our volcanoes here in the PNW produce ash instead of lava.

(Being on the receiving end of a volcanic ash-fall is a royal pain. It happened here in Beaverton in 1980, and if it never happens again in my lifetime that'll be just fine with me.)

1 I live about a mile from an extinct volcano (the Hornsby diatreme, which these days is just a huge hole in the ground).  I'm glad it's extinct, but that is a pretty photo.

2 First, there was an unusual smell. Then there was a loud bang.

So many Taco Bell jokes could be made.  So... many...

Portland is one of the few cities in the world with a volcano within its city limits. It's extinct; it'll never erupt again. But it's still pretty awesome.

4 Albuquerque volcanoes are technically in town. The development haven't covered them, because of Petroglyph National Monument constraining the city.
