Yesterday while we were doing our walk, I noticed this cloud over the peak beside the Raush Valley. The way the cloud was towering and being blown looked like what you often see over an erupting volcano. I was comforted by the fact that none of the mountains that border the Robson Valley are volcanic. The only volcano close to us is about 70 miles west (as the crow flies) in Wells Gray Park.
British Columbia has fifteen usually dormant volcanoes, most of which are along the Pacific Coast. The Lower Mainland of the Province is threatened however by more active volcanos that are located in Washington State. Mt. St. Helens, Mt. Baker, and Mt. Rainier come to mind.
