A quick trip to Mt. St. Helens

follow link On our final day in Whidby Island Washington we took a trip over to the coast of the island and to a old military installation called Ft. Ebey State Park. Ft. Ebey was originally built as a coastal defense fort in World War II. Concrete platforms make up the gun locations. All the support structure has been emptied out and its a large dark, cold maze.  The boys had a blast trying to scare each other in the dark!

We departed Whidby Island for Mt. St. Helens the next morning. We got all settled in and then early the following day off we went to the volcano itself.  On the trip up we stopped at the learning center where they had a fantastic “hands on” science center for the boys.

They even had a helicopter mock up.

The weather was overcast with low ceiling that morning, we were afraid the mountain was going to remain in the clouds all day but after we arrived things began to clear up.

It was windy and cool up on the mountain, the elevation was a little over 4000 ft.  The trees were simply blasted out of the ground, and I couldn’t help myself when the ground squirrel posed for the camera.

On the trip back to the campground, we stopped twice for Bigfoot. “The Bigfoot” hamburger and for the big guy himself.

Thank god I wasn’t alive during 1980! Thats when the volcano blew its top! And thank god I am alive now. You know, to collect samples of volcanic ash and all. UGH. Writer’s block sucks. So, thus, I shall go.

Thank you for your time.

Today, we saw Mt. St. Helens and got a little tour. What Sebastian means by he is glad that he wasn’t alive during 1980 is that Mt. St. helen erupted in that year. Also only 4 more days until we come home. Love you mom and see you soon everybody.        😛   bye   🙂
