Sweet shot!

I would love to see a pic looking up or out of the crater from the Lava Dome (this would probably require a geologist to upload a photo as the crater is off-limits to normal folk).

Yeah, I was really lucky to get this shot. A childhood friend who was a pilot in Alaska for many years was visiting in Vancouver at the same time I was (I was living in Juneau when it erupted). Four of us rented the plane, and he piloted it. Unfortunately I had negative film in my camera, and for some reason the camera refused to work at first, but it finally started working and I was able to take a few shots. Having climbed it pre-eruption, the view had a very strange impact on me emotionally. It was an unforgettable flight.

I just discovered this pic (I thought I had seen all of yours) but your comment of the strange impact is right on. For some reason it feels like a let down to see this once absolutely gorgeous mountain gutted like this.

I really like the ones you see and think, "where the hell did they take THAT from?"



Of course, there's a much bigger dome/pile of debris in there now.....

Maybe some day St. Helens will grow to be the highest mountain in the Cascade Range. As long as it's building I'm happy. A great shot. cowlitz
