I enjoy browsing random articles on Wikipedia for learning about various topics in my free time. This blog series is a collection of articles I’ve discovered, and am sharing with you that you may find interesting. I’m providing article titles, an excerpt of each article, and a link to the articles on Wikipedia that you can use to read the full articles if you would like. Let’s proceed with round 3.
Mount Price – Mount Price is a stratovolcano in the Garibaldi Ranges of southwestern British Columbia. It is 2,049 m (6,722 ft) high, and rises on the western side of Garibaldi Lake in New Westminster Land District. It has a number of features, including Clinker Peak, the source of two thick lava flows between 15,000 and 8,000 years ago. These unstable flows produced large landslides as recently as the 1850s. A provincial park surrounds Mount Price and other local volcanoes. It lies within an ecological region that surrounds much of the Pacific Ranges. Mount Price is one of a small group of volcanoes called the Garibaldi Lake volcanic field, part of the larger Garibaldi Volcanic Belt, a volcanic zone in the Canadian Cascade Arc. It began forming 1.2 million years ago and continued until sometime in the last 15,000 years. It has not been active for thousands of years, but if it did erupt, the Interagency Volcanic Event Notification Plan outlines how agencies involved in relief efforts may be notified. – [Read Full Article On Wikipedia]

Podcast Spotlights (in planning coming soon):
Podcast Spotlights are a new thing I started doing in September 2020. I have to admit that I don’t listen to many podcasts myself personally. If I do listen to one, it’s usually the Armin Van Buuren’s ASOT (A State Of Trance) podcast. My Podcast Spotlights are a way for me to connect with more favorite Podcasts, while also highlighting some that you may enjoy. See the list below of the current Podcast Spotlights. UPDATE: Apparently I deleted the posts for this segment of my website. Perhaps I had a change of focus. Maybe I’ll bring the spotlights back at some point.
