Comment Yellowstone National Park? (Score 1) 381

This is probably a wild guess, but does anyone else think that perhaps lava from the present bassins under Yellowstone might be tunneled to Mt St-Helens?

Here's a bit of searching I made on Google Maps

It may be kind of far for lava to travel, but you never know, considering what I remember hearing about the imensity of the supervolcano potentially involved.
