We will be visiting Mt St Helens at the beginning of August, staying overnight at Packwood and then going to the volcano. How long will we need to stop at the different visitor centers? Should we drive to Johnson Ridge first and stop at other visitor centers as we leave? Is Ocean Shores a reasonable place to stay that night? We plan to spend two days at ONP after Mt. St Helens.
Thank you - I'll probably have more questions before we leave!
