Mount St Helens

Yesterday we went up to the Johnson Ridge Observatory at Mount Saint Helens.  It's about a 2 hour drive from here, and it was well worth it.

The beauty is breathtaking and the story of it's 1980 explosion fascinating.  The kids were enthralled the whole time.
 


I was only 2 1/2 years old when the mountain blew, but I remember the aftermath and it's legendary destruction well.  Seeing it as an adult made me appreciate the power of such a volcano, as well as the incredible ability of nature to regenerate.

 If you ever get a chance to go see Mount St Helens, you really should.  It's awe inspiring.
