Mt St Helens
I visited this ex-peak this past weekend. Back on May 18, 1980, a huge volcanic explosion rocked the Pacific Northwest and left the once perfect cone mountain in rubble. Now, 31 years later, things look better. But it won't be a lush forest again in our lifetime. Things are still barely starting to come back to life. The devastation is hard to believe, and even harder to capture in photo.
(Sorry ABC Wednesdayers - X is SO hard. Forgive my Ex-peak and Ex-plosion LOL!)
