Mount St. Helens

Mount St. Helens is one of the most temperamental active volcanoes in the pacific northwest with the last recorded eruption in 1980. Every step you take screams ‘returned from the dead’ here. I don’t know how it looked prior to the eruption, but the barrenness only adds to the mind numbing serenity of this place now.
We took Murali’s parents here when they were visiting last year and they were absolutely thrilled. We put our cameras and phones away for a little bit and gazed at one of the most treacherous intrigues of nature for as long as we could.
I am scheming to take Murali here again next week and I can’t wait to go back.
