Remembrance and Rebirth: Visiting the Eastern Side of Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument

    1. Thanks so much, Josh! After spending almost 4 weeks in Washington state last year, I feel like it’s my second home (though unfortunately I won’t be able to get back there every year). Mount St. Helens was so beautiful. I wanted to keep it kind of a mystery, so I hadn’t looked at many pictures before our visit. That’s so unlike me, but it was such a surprise, which was really fun!

      1. That is such a great idea. Sometimes when I plan for a trip I do so much research that few things really surprise me when I visit (especially now, in the day and age of vloging). I am going to try that with a future trip 👍

  1. Another post I’m glad I checked out Marsi! More spectacular pictures, wow. I almost feel as if I’ve have a visit and seen a bit of the place now. I’ll be checking out your other pages soon.


  2. Excellent writeup and pictures!

    I just wanted to leave a note that Trail 207 from Windy Ridge is not a road that the Army Corps of Engineers built in 1982. It was originally part of Forest Road 100, which connected at the end with Highway 504 on the switchback curves up to Timberline. I have satellite images showing that road in place as early as the mid-1960s, and clearly defined in satellite images in 1979.

    The current road 99 (from FR25) to Windy Ridge pre-May 18, 1980 was originally Forest Road 100.
