The Majesty of Destruction
It's my turn to figure out the photo posting, and already I see that there is just nothing to it. We two grandmas spent a day at Mt. St. Helens a couple of months ago, or maybe just a month? We have been heading out occasionally on weekends, test runs for the big vacation that starts on Monday. We have half a dozen day trip destinations in mind, but on this day, a movie called "The Road" (starring Viggo Mortensen) was rumored to be filming . Not really a hard decision!
Whatever pointed us in that direction, we did the right thing when we followed. As we drove into the park, we saw a tiny sign with a helicopter on it. Hmmmm. Wonder what heli rides cost. We parked, and as we climbed out of the parking lot, this is what we beheld. As we stared, blown away, we heard the fateful announcement...there were two seats left for the next tour of crater. The universe had spoken.
If only I could figure out how to post photos AFTER blocks of type, and not just at the start. 2Grandma? Any thoughts?
