    That is awesome. Yeah, it is a volcano - in 1980 it erupted, blowing the top 1200 feet of the mountain off and replacing it with the crater that this time lapse footage is looking at, and killing a whole bunch of people.

    Being a Washingtonite I`m pretty familiar witht his sort of footage. What your seeing is not a mountain being formed. Its the lava dome. Along with the recent activity, the pressure underneat the dome has increased, pushing up rock. Scientists still arent sure about whats going on it there. There have been some pretty nifty stem and ash eruptions you might have seen on the news though! ^_^

    Actually...I found this to be quite interesting. I think its the wind erosion...but most likely I`m wrong...

    Yep ^_^ We pass through issiquah all the time on the way to my gramas. I live in Wenatchee ^_^

    Data Hazard. Thats pretty good guess, but this was over the pariod of months. Though it would be pretty cool if the wind were strong enough to do that o.o *daydreams*

    Anyway.. I think its.. well.. actually I dont know why its collapsing. ^_^ Yay ignorant people trying to sound smart!

    im no geologist, but that looked like a pile of ash from the volcano. it looks like you could sink in that stuff. doesnt really define the word mountain then
