|Mount St. Helens is still recovering and although there is vegetation it is still minimal after 27 years. Boundary Trail from the Johnston Ridge Observatory offers great views of the devastation that took place that day in 1980 that I watched it erupt. Well worth the trip for those who get in the area of SW Washington.
