    I see St Helens every day when I drive north. I also saw her erupt back in May 1980. St Helens tried to do a small show of it again on Dec 19, 2006.

    But my attention and mood changed immediately as I headed East and Mount Hood came into view. The latest sad news of the 3 men stranded up there: One has been found dead, the other two may not be found now until spring. (some are never found up there that go missing)

    This particular video reports of the other past tragedies I remember quite well. I knew the father of one of the students that died up there on Mt. Hood back in May 1986.

    Mount Hood is beautiful, but she can be quite deadly especially when coupled with one of those unpredictable storms.
