Today is the 29th anniversary of the big eruption of Mt. St. Helens. I was out yesterday on a beautiful spring day and had full view of the mountain. I always get butterflies when I get a glimpse of her on a clear day. It still takes me by surprise that the entire top of a mountain can be blown off. We are hoping to take a road/camping trip there this summer to check it out up close.
