We took the kids (and Cousin Spencer) to the Mt. St. Helen's Visitor Center for a school field trip to learn about volcano's and mountains. We had a lot of fun learning about the mountain and the explosion on May 18, 1980. I was six when it blew and scared out of my wits (but that is another blog on another day). We had fun walking on the trail around the lake and I was able to take a few pics of the beautiful fall colors.
