Well done on the twitpic of the city, this is Paris, ‘The City of Lights’…The most recent twitpic is indeed the ‘Falkland Islands’ also known to many as ‘Islas Malvinas’…no borders…no fighting…no flag-planting from this vantage point. Only pristine natural beauty.  How about this place? Do you know this volcano?

A group of us climbed St Helens in '07 when it was still active, before lapsing back into dormancy. It was so amazing! Tried again last October but it had snowed and we were unequipped for the ice at the top, so we turned back.

The power of eruption was equivalent to a little more than 500 times the power of the atomic bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Over an area of approx. 35 by 20 km all the trees were flattened.

I don’t know that for sure. Maybe they have an idea and check in Google Maps.
