Trip Report: Mt. St. Helens Loowit Trail

It will be thirty-five years on May 18 since Mt. St. Helens erupted and blasted off its top 3000 feet.  Mt. St. Helens is mostly quiet today, slowly rebuilding its dome in its deep north-side crater, and re-establishing vegetation and faunal communities in its blasted areas.
