During the Eruption
After the Eruption
This picture was taken in 1987 while I was in kindergarten. That is my dad, my grandmother, my brother Jeff, and me near a lahar on the south side of Mount St. Helens.
I found these pictures on the Web. Most of them are from the USGS/Cascades Volcano Observatory site at
Vancouver, Washington, kept up by Lyn Topinka.
Many stories have been told and written about the events that occurred on Mt. St. Helens during and after its explosions.
I have written several short stories about how Mt. St. Helens was seen by animals living there. To read these, click here!
