Old tag. . National monument. .. this is a viewpoint inside the Mt St Helens National Volcanic Monument in the Cascade mountain range. The mountain famously blew it's top in May of 1980. There's a ton of information about it on the Web, including the story of a geologist named Johnston (the last words anyone heard from him was a brief radio call that said something like "This is it!!")... And the story about an interesting old guy (Harry Truman) who would not get off the mountain and basically dared the mountain to kill him. .. the mountain won. Harry's homestead was blasted into oblivion when the entire northern face of the volcano exploded.
I will try to get a new tag over the weekend.
