Sunset on the Duwamish

2014 Walking with Giant, the book now in print

This is the story of a man who battled most of his life with disfiguring cancer and homelessness. This photo essay and the accompanying text covers details of his battle and his life journey, the three months I spent with him while he was living in Seattle's Tent City 3 and subsequent move into permanent housing.

Mount St. Helens (8126)Mount St. Helens (8126)"Sunday, May 18, 1980 about 20 seconds after 8:32 a.m. PDT, apparently in response to a magnitude 5.1 earthquake about 1 mile beneath the volcano, the bulged, unstable north flank of Mount St. Helens suddenly began to collapse, triggering a rapid and tragic train of events that resulted in widespread devastation and the loss of 57 people." The lateral blast devastated an area of about 230 square miles that contained lakes, rivers, old growth forest and wildlife.

About a 2.5 to 3 hour drive from Seattle, what we're looking at here is the base area around Mount St. Helens, 31 years after the eruption. <a href="http://mountsthelens.com/history-1.html" rel="nofollow">Full history of Mount S. Helens</a>
