Mount Saint Helens

With a sunny and dry day finally in the forecast, we chose Mount St Helens as the hike… It turned out to be sunny and dry, but very cold and windy day…giving it that real alpine feel. We decide to go to the true summit, making it up and down in just under 7-hours. Myself, Deb, Chris, Rob, Marty, and JJ were the team.
