Mariners Player As A Volcano
On any sunny day, residents of Seattle are reminded of their proximity to Mount Rainier, and they’ve known from a young age of the potential hazards were it to erupt. Far fewer people are aware of their proximity to Glacier Peak, to the north. Glacier Peak is less prominent than Rainier, and less iconic, and less capable of mass destruction, but it is known to be a highly explosive volcano that is far from extinct, and as such it is borderline criminally under-monitored. While Glacier Peak might be seldom discussed, that is not a reflection of its considerable eruptive potential.
