Subject: Mt St. Helens

Written By: Race_Bannon on 06/05/03 at 10:58 a.m.

One of my most memorable moments in my life was May 18th, 1980. †Mt. St. Helens blew her top and created quite a mess. †She's looking pretty good 23 years later.

Visitors to the Johnston Ridge Observatory get a front-row seat to view the awesomeness of Mount St. Helensí crater. At 4,200 feet above sea level, itís the observation point closest to the crater.

I remember this too.  I was living in Wyoming at the time and for what seemed like a very long time, there was this haze over the whole town and we were covered in ash.  It almost seemed like it was snowing.
I would love to see Mt. St. Helens sometime up close.  The picture is beautiful.

I remember it too.  I also remember there was a fella by the name of Harry Truman (I think) who died because he refused to move away from it.

One of my mom's friends traveled there shortly after the explosion and brought us back a few bags of the ash.  I brought it into school for our science class.

I have a facsination with volcanos...and a lot of people forget we have a few right her in the USA. (other than in Hawaii I mean).

You're correct on Harry Truman, he ran the Spirit Lodge, or similar name to that anyway.  He was a stubborn ol' coot for sure.  Death toll from the eruption is in the 60's If I remember correctly, it was much higher right after the eruption but has decreased as they have found people thought missing.  

And thanks for the thanks sillywabbit. :)
