Description In this somber, Holga style, black and white photograph, the stump of a tree stands atop Johnston's Ridge like a ghostly of Mount St. Helens' eruption. Two tiny seedlings grow along side the dead stump, joining it in watchful vigil over the valleys and mountains surrounding Mount St. Helens.
