Yin Yang on a Grand World Scale
coneyislandgreen Says: Normally I'm very good at giving enough details but I fell short this time. If you are going to Mount Saint Helen's by Rt. 504 to Johnston's Ridge you will pass on the left a quaint red cottage that serves good burgers and 4 kinds of really good warm cobbler with vanilla ice...
Legend and folklore surrounds Mount Saint Helens. As the story goes, the Loowit, an old crone, once inhabited the Mountain. The Old Loowit kept a fire burning bright on the mountain. As a result, she was transformed into a beautiful woman. Those of you familiar with Greek mythology can guess what happened next. Two Chiefs fought for the now fair lady. The powers that be (aka, the Gods) became angry and transformed the chiefs and the loowit into mountains. The loowit is now the sometimes angry volcano subject to eruption.
