1. Above treeline

Heding up towards the worm flows

2. Mud Flow

Climbing up past a very long and narrow mud flow down the slopes of Mt. St. Helens. Maybe it was caused by a lot of rain. It was very odd looking and I've never seen anything like it before. Mike and Jack the dog in the photo.

3. Looking down into the volcano

Looking down at the forming lava dome in Mt. St. Helens. Check out the new lava fin forming slightly left of center.

4. Southern Rim

The southern rim of Mt. St. Helens.

Looking over to the post eruption true summit of Mt. St. Helens. It looks really far to get to but wasn't that bad. You can skin across the crater rim to the summit.

The rim of Mt. St. Helens from the summit and Adams in the distance to the west.

Mt. Rainier in the distance above a sea of clouds from the summit of Mt. St. Helens.
