but the truth is, it is a lot more powerful than we are.
And there is a good example of that on the map itself.
If you look closely, you will see two very dense green strips running north-south on the west coast.
On the inside strip, if you look up towards the State of Washington, you will see two white dots of sorts.
The top dot is pretty close to me, about 30 miles. It is Mt. Rainier.
The dot below that (remember, these white areas are places with no trees), is almost exactly 100 miles due south of my house. Took me a bit to realize what it was.
There is a large area there bigger than Mt. Rainier National Park with no trees.
There are no trees there because Mt. St. Helens woke up with a bad hair day!!
Wow! Stunning. “Bad Hair Day”, indeed!
