I can't speak to how exhilerating and hard this was. We summited the mountain and it took 12 hours. You can see from the pictures, the end result was awesome, but the work is not to be underestimated. It is not a technical climb. You...More

This is an interesting stop that should be on the list for the accomplished traveler. Though it is sort of at the end of the road, it is not far of I-5 and easy to get to. There are many opportunities for extensive hiking, but...More

Mr St Helens blew its top in 1980, killing several people and becoming a tourist attraction, in one step. Easily accessible from I-5 from either Portland or Seattle, the mountain is reached by a single road, with several educational stops and numerous photo-ops. We stopped...More

I am not sure if this is the one. However for the west side of Mount St Helens, you'll basically follow Spirit Highway from Toledo. Forest road to east side, the windy ridge does not open until snow is clear in late July and... More
