Learn about the geologically young volcanic islands we live amongst.

Islands take many forms. On the east side of the Cascades, we live amidst geologically young volcanic islands. Have you ever wondered what the early people thought of the ash falling from the sky or the nighttime glow on the horizon? These rocks have violent stories to tell.
