    Was Truman the guy who owned the store by Spirit Lake? There was some guy who said if Helens erupted he would hop in his car and drive away. Estimate was his place was gone in 1.5 seconds

  3. Whenever I see Mt. St. Helens, I think of Harry Truman; the landowner who would not leave.

  4. My jaw’s still stuck to the floor. Absolutely the most breathtaking photos of Mother Nature having a hissy fit I’ve ever seen . . .

  5. Eerily beautiful.

  6. Eat your heart out, Hollywood.
