Photos from my summer of 2000
visit to Mt St Helens.
The crater from the north and Spirit
Lake. Notice how many logs
are still afloat in the lake.
Remaining tree trunks sheared from
the blast of the 1980 eruption.
This photo was taken in 1991.
Looking from the south crater rim,
you can see a portion of the building
dome in the center of the crater,
Spirit Lake and Mount Rainier.
Updated views from the Fall of 2004. Mount
Saint Helens venting slightly as the volcano again becomes active.
