September 28, 2002: Mount St. Helens

A hiking trip with Melissa to Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument in the fall of 2002 (exactly two years before the volcano started acting up again). We hiked east from Johnston Ridge Observatory on the Boundary Trail to a saddle just past the junction with the Harry's Ridge trail.
