Mount Saint Helens

The Knowlson attempt to cling to summertime...

A few Fridays ago, Adam and I left work on Friday but instead of going home, we drove to Washington. We camped at the base of Mount Saint Helens, woke up at 4am, and began hiking with head lamps through the forest. 

Between the legends of Bigfoot and the volcanic nature of the park, this place had a lot to offer! I would highly recommend this hike. Looking into the crater at the top of the volcano was one of the coolest things - it made the final ascent of uphill hiking through volcanic ash all worth it.
