    Be careful...some define Yellowstone as a dormant volcano, and Yellowstone mudpots as (mud)volcanoes driven by magmatic heat..and most of the NH White Mountains are ancient volcanoes, eroded over eons.

    I think your intent is for ones that have been magmatically active in the last...100,000 years?

    GREAT idea..just needs a little clarification:)

    Just think of the bonus points for activating an actively erupting volcano!

    Sliding down a snow face is great--until you see rocks that have been pushed aside, thus wondering what hidden pointy stuff is underneath you... I did that in the Alps many years ago and was loudly chided in German, French, AND Italian / First and last time:)

    Tim--Great trek and terrific videography:)

    I was on St Helens when she blew. I was near Cougar on the Swift Reservoir when she let go! Been to Trout Lake just south of Adams many many times!

    I suppose they'll use the WARC bands to activate the volcanoes / Extra points I'm sure

    I think it's a capital idea but with one caveat. Extinct volcanos need to count.

    Glad you enjoyed it! Type 2 fun for sure. Wish I'd brought a jacket.

    Spent many years driving mostly the west side of that mountain back in the early 1980's. Picked a lot of huckleberries, spent many hours on a snowmobile traversing that area. Good Times - Helped a guy build a log cabin in Trout Lake. A dormant volcano, but so was St. Helens until it wasn't.
