|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|These are called hummocks that are created by large rocks and ash deposits that were washed down Mt. St. Helens by the lahars during and after the initial blast of 1980. The rocks amongst these hummocks have many colors as they were superheated as they were swallowed up by the gasses that streamed down the mountainside. You can see many elk laying at the edges of these during the hot part of the day as the only shade during the day and water supply is guaranteed to be along the Toutle River nearby.|
