Wish I'd seen this!

I was up in that general area during the summer of '79 also, but the weather was horrible, so there were no views. Also I was with a bunch of kids who would have been too lazy to get on top of anything, so even with perfect weather I still probably wouldn't have seen this view. But at least I could have seen the mountain from the trail and gotten some photos. Oh well... -Bob

Re: Wish I'd seen this!

I've posted a picture of my hiking companions. The youngest did need some prodding from his sister.

Re: Wow ...

It was so beautiful back then!

I visited Washington in 1975, (five years before the eruption), but I was unable to see
Mt. St. Helens due to cloud cover.

In 1980, I felt the ground shake while I was
visiting my grandmother in Puyallup.

Re: Wow

It is not so beautiful anymore but it is worth a visit. SilverSummit has a nice album of recent pictures.
