    Cons: N/A

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Seeing nature rebuild itself
    Cons: The wonder if it will ever happen again???

    Summary: Today, May 18th is the 20th anniversary of the eruption of Mount Saint Helens. I thought it would be appropriate to write an epinion today about an event that was not only huge in the lives of us Washingtonians, but for many around the US as well as ... read more

    Rated Show
    Pros: New Park, very modern
    Cons: Fairly far from the actual area of devastation.

    Summary: We first visited Mount St. Helens a few months after the famed eruption. The affect then was stark reality of the destructive power of a volcano. Very few people were there and the road ran along the river so you had the feeling of being surrounded by ... read more
