Day trip to Mt. St. Helens.

Yesterday I woke up and said…”We should go to Mt. St. Helens.” And to Mt. St. Helens we went!

This was our fifth trip to the volcano, but it’s been over a year since we’ve last been there!

This bride is on the way to Mt. St. Helens. The end of the bridge on the right is where the edge of the blast zone is. Nothing survived in the blast zone. Those trees were not there after the blast. Intense!

We ate nuts along the way. I found the largest cashew known to man!

I took my Diana mini with me in hopes of finishing off a roll of film that’s been in there for almost 2 months! I still didn’t finish it though.

Toutle River. That’s ash down there!

This is the Toutle River looking away from St. Helens.

Wild flowers.

The wild flowers were in bloom. I love Washington wild flowers!

Note Castle Lake near Mt. St. Helens.

There she is!

More flowers near St. Helens.

We saw this little guy having a snack!

So much destruction, but it’s always so pretty here!

Here’s a shoddy panoramic view I took for you! If you get the chance to visit Mt. St. Helens one day you really should!
