swimming in volcanoes
Today was my first day at an advanced imaging course at Marine Biology Laboratory at Woods Hole Massachusetts – the main reason I came out to the US. The days run from 8am to midnight.. so I doubt I will be writing much while I'm here.
The past days spent in Seattle were fortunate to have amazing weather so I took the chance to hike around crescent lake and up into the ridges overlooking mount olympus.
Clear skies made for some breathtaking views right over the mountains.
We didn’t spot any elk but a few black tail deer lingered by the roadside on our way up. We even got a clear view of Mount Rainier… a massive, active volcano due for an explosive city destroying eruption anytime now.
There are a carefree few who actually climb Mount Rainier
with scuba gear
enter through the steam vents
and then descend
back down into the volcano to explore the lake inside.
