On the night of Thurs., Sept. 25, the Hood River Middle School auditorium will come alive with photos of both current and historical geologic events on Mt. Hood and Mt. Adams.
Local photographer Darryl Lloyd will begin his slide show with a comparison of the eruptive histories of the two stratovolcanoes over the past 15,000 years. Then attendees will learn that about 200 years ago, lahars swept down the White and Sandy River drainages from Mt. Hood, as well as the White Salmon River from Mt. Adams.
The presentation will showcase both present-day and historic photos of the two mountains' glaciers, along with amazing photo coverage of the debris flows of November, 2006.
Lloyd will conclude with a brief overview of ongoing research in the glacier basins of Mt Hood by USGS scientists and graduate students at OSU and PSU.
This one-hour presentation will begin at 7 p.m.
The event is free and open to the public.
It is sponsored by HR Community Education, (541) 386-2055, and Hood River Watershed Group, (541) 386-6063.
