We set off this morning headed for the observation point on the north side of Mount St. Helen’s. It was cloudy with sun breaks. The forecast was for the clouds to burn off by noon. At 11:30 am, this is what we were looking at:
It was drizzly and the outside temp from our car thermometer was 46?Ǭ?. So we turned around and headed back to the interpretive center – 30 miles back and at a lower elevation. We stopped on the way to get a view of this bridge.
This sign made us feel as if we had been someplace, at least!!
We found a nice picnic spot at Seaquest State Park.
After lunch we played and explored the area.
Some tree shots:
This sign was on one of the buildings. I thought about removing it and putting it in my studio.
These wonderful orange hightops were sighted on Mia. (I want some.)
We ended our time at the interpretive center. We watched a movie that chronicled the 1980 eruption of the volcano. I had forgotten how massive and destructive it had been.
Then it was back home and back to the sewing machine.
