Default the slumbering beast

took a day trip to Mt. St. Helens over the weekend. it's amazing after 29 years how barren the landscape still is... i hung around most of the afternoon and got some nice shots as the sun went down. 5D, 24-135, variouis settings...

Very awesome shots, and I really like the sunset on the mountain.

It's been years since I was out that way. Do you have any shots of the other side of the ridge, facing away from the crater? I was impressed by the destruction over on the other side of the ridge.

thanks! i didn't take any facing away from Johnston Ridge, but you're right, there's not a lot still standing on that side of the ridge either. the landslide and the pyroclastic explosion pretty much leveled everything in sight.

i haven't been up to the Windy Ridge side of the mountain for several years, either, but last time i was there, in 2005, it still looked like a lunar landscape... the trees that weren't knocked flat were charred, spindly toothpicks...

thank you, gentlemen! even after all these years, the sight of that crater and the barren slopes is still a powerful reminder of the sheer force of nature, against which we are like ants in a hurricane...
