Volcano Tour Destination

Intro Sample...


In total the eruption killed fifty seven people, damaged many homes, destroyed bridges and roads creating a huge financial impact.

Some additional interesting facts on this volcano are around what was left after the eruption. The original mountain summit height was 9677 feet. After the eruption the new mountain summit height was reduced by 1312 feet, to a new height of 8,365 feet. An additional feature that was left in the wake of the eruption was a large creator where a summit once stood. This creator was over 1 mile long consisting of a shape of a horse shoe.

I wanted to gather the most up to date news for our visit so I gathered the following recent news: (Wikipedia, 2007)
2004 Activity:
“At 12:02 p.m. PDT on October 1, 2004, the mountain threw a plume of steam and volcanic ash about 9,700 feet (about 3 kilometers) into the air (according to pilot reports), from a vent in the unnamed glacier just southwest of the lava dome. The resulting ash plume was reported to have drifted south to Vancouver, Washington and Wood Village, Oregon, dusting cars with a fine layer of black, sooty ash.”

2005 Activity:
“Mount St. Helens had major activity again on March 8, 2005 at about 5:30 p.m. local time, when a 36,000-foot (11 km) plume of steam and presumably ash was witnessed emerging from the volcano, accompanied by a tremor that measured about 2.5 on the Richter scale.”

2006 Activity:
“On December 19, 2006 an eruption sent a steam plume billowing over Washington State.”

    Memoir - Playing Music In A Band

    There’s no place like home. By Kha Lehuu I remember thinking when I was younger and in the crowd that I one day would be able to use the stage as my own world for half an hour. That I would just close my eyes and let my fingers and voice tell two to five minute short stories to fill up that half hour time slot. Up there I would have a sense of comfort, a sense of serenity. When I was growing up I always heard music playing throughout the house. Whether it would be a traditional Vietnamese song or Michael Jackson, I would always get really into it. My father loved music and he loved his

    Brand India WHEN we look at Brand India, five characteristics come immediately to mind. I will focus on each of these very briefly. They often tend to get taken for granted. ? First, Brand India is multilayered - by caste, by language, by religion, by region, by income, which is very important as far as consumer goods are concerned. ? Second, Brand India is an evolved brand. ? Third, it is an aggregative brand, one that is composed of a large number of sub-brands. ? Fourth, it's a brand in transition. It's not a settled brand. It's undergoing transformation daily, in various att

The expected long range effects of recent climate change may already be observed. Rising sea levels, glacier retreat, Arctic shrinkage, and altered patterns of
