Mt. St. Helens
As press reports on March 22, some areas around Mt. St. Helens volcano, that had been closed for visitors after the reawakening of Mt. St. Helens in Oct. 2004 are being reopened, since activity has been drastically decreasing. This includes the Johnston Ridge Observatory, was evacuated on October 2 as volcanic activity increased and now scheduled for reopening on 6th of May...
At the moment, the mountain will remain closed above the Loowit Trail, roughly the tree line, keeping the popular south-side climbing route off limits. Ridge-top trails north of the volcano and the Mount Margaret backcountry, a permit-only area, will reopen as conditions permit. Parts of the Loowit and Truman trails on the north side will stay closed because of possible mud flows.

The two volcano tours on Hawai'i have come to an end, or better, the time to enjoy these fresh memories has now started. We look back on 10 days packed with impressions from exceptional activity at Kilauea volcano,- we have been incredibly lucky both as to activity (Kilauea was/still is in one of its most active phases since the start of the eruption in 1983), and the weather and last but not least thanks to the great mix of people we have had on board. Not only got we to see lots of lava during the 5 days each, but we also had our great share of fun, met interesting new people from all over and did many other interesting and nice activities aside.Tom took many photos, some of which will soon be available (mainly on www.decadevolcano.net
). Due to the sucess of the tour, the VolcanoDiscovery Hawai'i
team (Tom, Phil and Philippe) can offer to repeat the tour for individuals or small groups at almost any date on request, in English and/or French as well as Portuguese. In addition, two new fixed dates, now open for inscriptions, are now set up for mid November: 13-18 and 20-25 November, 2005
. Details of the tour can be found at this page. (Since Tom will be on location as well during these tours, the languages the tour can be done, are: German, English, French, Danish, Italian, Greek and Portuguese or a mix of these). ... read all
