Day 16 - Mount Saint Helens

This is not Mount Saint Helens. You might be asking yourself why this is significant. There are about 400 steps from the parking lot to the top of this mountain. I made it to the top. More importantly, this is the best vantage point.to see Mount Saint Helens and almost all of Spirit Lake which took the brunt of the eruption..
