Mount St. Helens as seen from the Johnston Ridge Observatory on July 9, 2011.  The observatory is
located some 5 1/2 miles north of the mountain at an elevation of 4313 feet, while St. Helens has an
 elevation of 8365 feet.  Before the catastrophic eruption on May 18, 1980, its elevation was 9677
feet.  The author was at his home on the Oregon coast and witnessed the ash mixed with the coastal
fog during a second eruption on May 25, 1980.  For additional information, click here.
