It's still a bit early.  Cold, wet, & windy makes the experience that much more elemental.

Mt. St. Helens at the rim of Windy Ridge just South of Spirit Lake.

 

BTW, it's easier to climb the 400+ steps if you don't smoke...just saying.

Never climbed it, but I was in Spokane when it blew...couldn't see my hand in front of my face outside at noon!

Cool deal.  Nothing gets the legs burning like a few thousand feet of elevation change.

Ride motorcycles to the observatory two years ago. Great country out there.

Update:  Windy Ridge is still closed due to massive snows.  

 

Maybe in another month.  

 

Still, it was fun playing in the snow.   ;)
