Mt. Rainier had a 3.2 earthquake yesterday-one mile below the surface of the crater. Mt. St. Helens had a similar earthquake before is started to spew last month, but scientists say the two events are not linked. But five quakes greater than magnitude 2.0 were recorded Oct. 25-31-the same kind of activity on Mt. St. Helens.
I am just glad that I got to the top of Rainier this summer since if it goes, it will go big. I think it may go soon, it has been waiting 150 years. You heard it here first....
More bad news from this climbing season. The 7th person died on Mt. Rainier this year on October 25th. What is worse is that this is the first person do die this season on the Camp Muir side of the mountain. Two locals were hiking across a crevasse on Ingraham Glacier, 11,000 feet up the 14,411-foot mountain, near Disappointment Cleaver, when an avalanche hit. One guy had only his had free and dug himself to safety, but could not help his buddy at all. I camped at Ingraham Glacier at the foot of Disappointment Cleaver. :(
