Saint Helens

The Eruption of Mount St. Helens on May 18, 1980 drastically altered the surrounding landscape.  The lush forests that flanked the northern slope of the volcano have become a barren plain of ash deposits and blown down trees. Hiking through the blast zone, I wanted to show the show the devastation caused by the eruption, but also show nature's slow response and regrowth.
