Backpacking on Mt. Saint Helens Sep, 2011


This was a super fun backpacking trip we took over Labor Day in 2011. We hiked the (officially closed) trail to Sheep Canyon on Mount St. Helens and had a wonderful time admiring the wildflowers and snackinig on the plentiful berries along the way.

Our campsite was perfect, right by a little creek that babbled us to sleep. We day-hiked up around the edge of the mountain, then back to camp via another trail on an opposite ravine. It was a great getaway, and the company couldn't have been better. On the way home, we drove up to Vista House, a rest stop built in 1916 that offers an amazing view of the Columbia River.

Thanks, Ronna and Mark, for more terrific memories!
