Evidence of blast so long ago
Mount Saint Helens

Many dead trees from the blast are still visible on this ridge across from the Johnston Ridge Observatory after 29 years.

Interesting to see how little this particular area has recovered. About 2 years after the eruption my wife and I hiked to Norway Pass on the east end of Spirit Lake. The most notable thing to me was the fat ground squirrels--There were no trees for the predators to perch in.

I agree. There were areas of regrowth but the Pumice Plain was still so barren.
