On the way to Mount St. Helens

While my aunt was visiting, and my parents were still here, we went to Mt. St. Helens.  Last time I was there was about 15 years ago.  So it was fun to go back, and show Siena and Lucas too, this volcano that we see almost daily.


As we turned East from I5, from sunny it turned into this, within seconds!  Portland was beautiful, and I was wondering what we were going to see with all these clouds and fog.


But at the visitor’s center, not far we saw their live webcam. Phew!  I was sure glad it was clear up there!


Driving 2 hours each way to not see the crater from the observatory would be pretty boring for some of the passengers I had with me.

Fall is definitely here.



We had to stop.  The views…

And finally arriving at the Johnston Ridge Observatory, with a beautiful sunny and warm day.  And a perfect view!




And a perfect view!
