Mt. St. Helens ride

Since temps were mild, myself and four other riders from a local forum rode up to Windy Ridge on the east side of the mountain yesterday. With no tourist traffic, we basicly had the rode to ourselves . I took my time on the way down to enjoy the views and fall colors.

Good looking roads--makes me miss my speed triple. Amazing how the area still looks so devastated after all this time. I understand that a new dome is forming; wonder how long before it blows up.

I love the sound of exploding gasoline.

The first pic is the view of the mountain from Windy Ridge. The second pic shows the lava dome inside the crater.

This is one ride that has been on my list for some time. Might have to check it off the list next summer after seeing your pictures. Thank you for sharing!
