mount st. helens

Since I moved to Oregon, I've always wanted to visit Mount St. Helen's and last week we finally went.  It takes about four hours to get there, but is well worth the drive.  So awesome, in the real sense of that word.

We saw some wildlife...
Inchworm enhance...

The closer we got, the more impressive the mountain became.

The view from the Mount St. Helens Visitor Center.

Getting closer.

From the look-out at the Johnston Ridge Observatory, about 5 miles away.
You really need to click on this to get a feel for the great sweep of land.

On the way home, we stopped to visit Bigfoot.
