Mount St. Helens From Afar

Mount St. Helens is known as the volcano in the Pacific Northwest that erupted in 1980 and caused a lot of damage but people still enjoy going to observe it and hike it.

One day we spontaneously decided to drive 1hr 40min to the Johnston Ridge Observatory from where this Mount is accessible, but it was closed (the downsides of being spontaneous); so we had to settle with parking and observing from a distance.

  1. Oh wow, these photos are just beautiful! I especially like how the mountains contrast with the bright pops of colour from the flowers 🙂
