Perhaps the most amazing thing about White Wing is the forest of dead trees on top. The trees were killed by the eruption of Obsidian Dome 600 years before. I climbed over the peak in my spare time, while working on a scientific drilling project nearby.
"As an adolescent I aspired to lasting fame, I craved factual certainty, and I thirsted for a meaningful vision of human life - so I became a scientist. This is like becoming an archbishop so you can meet girls."
