Pumice is COOL!

This featherweight piece of pumice fascinated me so much I almost couldn't put it down. The strands of glass in the rock were incredible. Wish the picture did the rock more justice, but you can get an idea of how it looks if you click on the picture for the large view. Pretty neat!

Have you ever been to the Ape Cave up past Cougar near Mt. St. Helens? If I remember the local lore right, it's supposedly in the "Land of Sasquatch" and home to Bigfoot. I guess in all reality it's an old lava tube from the volcano. It gives me the absolute creeps being deep underground - I dunno how coal miners do it!! - but I managed to get a ways down it many years ago. Pretty awesome!
