Mount St. Helens

The last time I went to Mount St. Helens, I bet I was only 14 years old, if that. It's funny how you can live so close to something that is really quite spectacular and fail to give it the attention it warrants.

Well, since the 30th anniversary of the massive eruption is nearly upon us, I thought that no better an excuse to check it out again*. The weather for the day fell into the Oh-this-is-why-Washington-is-the-best-place-in-the-world-to-live category, which made everything glisten and gleam that much more.

Unfortunately, the tippy top visitor's center hasn't opened yet for the year, so we couldn't peer down into the crater, see the spectacular documentary movie, etc. Instead, we had to be content with just driving around and taking in some of the viewpoints which made for a spectacular day as it was.

Washington is NOT the best place in the world to live. In fact, it sucks. It is absolutely horrible. If you live somewhere else, please stay there. You DO NOT want to come to Washington. Not even to visit. There is nothing here but rain. ;)

Per Mindi's comment, in terms of tourism, Washington is the new Iceland.In terms of natural disasters, Iceland is the new Washington.

Correction: That heron is thinking "with all the lakes this state just stocked with stupid, fat trout, I had to pick the empty one?"
