Mt. St. Helens Lava Dome
This big fin of rock is growing at a rate of 4-5 feet a day, and is currently almost 500 feet tall. Every few days a piece the size of a truck breaks off the top. Onlookers say it's like watching a mountain grow.
Speaking of which, one of my sisters stopped by today with her 6 month old: and he is HUGE! We had a great time checking in, and going for a little walk with the stroller around the neighborhood. Here's a pic (such a proud uncle).
