The View From Mount St. Helens’ Summit

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the May 18, 1980 eruption at Mount St. Helens. Just a few months shy of the anniversary, we visited the volcano and climbed to the summit to check out the views. We could clearly see and smell the steaming lava dome, witnessed rockfalls in the crater, and had a stunning view of the blast zone and Spirit Lake to the North. Mount Rainier and Mount Adams also made an appearance on the horizon.
