From the Archives - Time Heals

Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, Washington  © Doug Hickok

Made from Velvia slide film, this image was shot about five summers ago. Even then, after 25 years from the day Mount St. Helens erupted and ravaged the surrounding mountains and valleys, the land showed signs of recovering. Areas of forest blowdown grew masses of wildflowers. Scars from mud flows slowly healed. And a lone tree was determined to pioneer a new beginning. Life is a persistent force. And time heals.


  1. a beautiful composition, and colors not very usual, cheer!

  2. Ce large premier plan mauve, comme un champ de bataille! Des arbres abattus et un seul survivant rescapé vertical! Les fleurs qui tapissent le sol leurs offrent une belle sépulture!
    Cela dit, le paysage demeure grandiose!
    Bonne fin de semaine lumineuse!

  3. gorgeous flowers. when we lived in Washington, i did the Tour de Blast bike ride each June.

  4. I love this picture so much it hurts a little. The West is calling to meeeeee!!!!
