About Me

My photo
Adalbert is a forum for me, to post ephemera, photography, poetry, occasional travel notes, and various spontaneous motions. Cover photo: Parsonage where my great-grandfather spent his early years. Taken near Liegnitz, Silesia, ca. 1870.

Mount Adams, Washington State

Per Wikipedia, this dormant, volcanic peak in the Cascade Range has lost a couple hundred feet since the time of this postcard (or else measuring has become more precise). Crawfordsville is an unincorporated area in Linn County, Oregon.


  1. The other way around (if the volcano would have become higher) would be more alarming.

  2. Yes, when mountains gain height that is a bad sign. I actually live fairly close to another volcano, Mt. St. Helens, which did lose its top in an eruption May 18 1980, which I witnessed from a distance.
