The world never experienced a volcano erupting and exploding live on TV before the Mount St. Helens eruption of May 18, 1980. The incredible power of mother nature was realized, as it claimed 58 lives and devestated surrounding forests. The sheer height of Mount St. Helens even decreased by 1,300 feet!

Lensmaster MobyD chronicles some of the eruption day’s events, and has some interesting photographs of the devestation caused within the blast zone on his Mount St. Helens lens. If you’re planning a visit to the area, there are useful tips on when to go, what else is in the area, directions on how to get there, and information on the admission prices. This will certainly give you some ideas and trip planning material for your trip to this monument of Washington state.

    Thanks very much for mentioning my lens! I’ll definitely be checking out some of the other lenses mentioned in this blog, such as the one about the Oregon Coast, one of my favorite places to visit.
