Back in 2007, on a family trip to Mt Saint Helens, we stopped by a local shop with a glass blowing artist at work.
It’s some of the coolest things to see when you see molten glass being formed into a shape.
At that time, I had my Nikon D80 and my Sony Fx-1.
I wish I recorded more with the camcorder but at least I got some great pics on the trip.
You do have to pay to view Mt Saint Helens from the Johnston Ridge Observatory but its a once in a lifetime visit and well worth it!
I can’t remember what this dial was for besides being a compass.
This day was a great day with smoke rising from the crater of Mt. Saint Helens.
It makes me truly appreciate nature and I’m wishing we’d do more family trips now, but it’s gotten harder with more activities.
There are better places to view the crater than from this crowded location, just walk a bit further away from the observatory.
Looking at this pics, I feel like I’m reliving my past.
This was the viewpoint for the glass blowing. You could see everything clearly from this viewpoint at the Hoffstadt Bluffs.
You can also visit the Forrest Learning Center.
Go visit these wonderful places when you visit Washington!
