Mount St. Helens
erupted almost 30 years ago, with a 2.9km
debris avalanche, a large portion of which ended up filling the North Fork Toutle River.
Given that everything else was buried under several feet of ice, snow, rock and ash, I’m not sure how this tree ended up on the ridge by the
Johnston Ridge Observatory
, but it made for a pretty pic.
Unfortunately, the summit and post-eruption lava dome were hidden in some cloud, through which some sunlight occasionally peaked.
there was some sun.
But a great family day out all the same. Thanks Fay for organizing & Steve for the tip.
