Mount Saint Helens, an afternoon trip...

Several weeks ago we managed a day trip up to Mount Saint Helens. 
We curled our way through the Washington forests until we reached this most impressive volcanic world…
We did a short trek through one of the lava tunnels where the temperature stays an even forty-two degrees—a most wonderful break from the ninety plus weather we had been enduring above ground...
 What a relief to be far, far away from the city, even if I do love the city we now live in...
  We picnicked by a stream that ran straight down from the mountain…
 The water is still filled with ash from when Saint Helens blew in the early eighties...
The kids had a great time...
Barefoot in the wet volcanic sand...
 What a lovely day...

  1. I recall the TV coverage of the eruption of Mount Helena which looked so frightening on the screen. It is lovely to see that over 30 years later nature has once again re-established herself.
