mount saint helens at last

September 2, 2011 Leave a comment Go to comments

Back in the fall of 2008, we made a Sunday road trip to the visitors center of Mt. St. Helens. Unfortunately, that day we didn’t make it all the way because of the short daylight hours, so we figured we’d finally try again, both earlier in the year and leaving earlier in the day. We stopped for a puppy exercise break at the same park at Silver Lake with a great view of the mountain.

And we made another quick stop to check out the local Bigfoot attraction.

Who loves a car ride? The puppies say, “We do!!”

Success! We made it all the way to the visitors center with plenty of daylight left!

You can see the new dome building in the middle of the crater.

Is that smoke or steam from a side vent, or just swirling dust?

It is really an astonishing sight, and I’m glad we finally got a chance to see the mountain close-up.
