Majestic Mount St. Helens. This is my home mountain. I did a lot of growing up under this beauty. From childhood hikes with my Dad taking us kids on a military march into the wilderness. I hated it then. My little legs were tired and I would of rather gone home and planted my ass in front of a tv or listen to z100. 😂 But it was also where he taught me endurance and a deep appreciation for the wilderness. I’m so grateful to him for those marches. I didn’t realize then how much they would mean to me. And then fast forward to being a teen.. sneaking out to go make a fire and drink beers with my friends. Bunch of wild country kids going off to the wilderness looking for trouble. Thinking we were cool making fires and flirting with each other. While I struggled to choke down a cheap ass beer. Isn’t it amazing how a landmark can hold so much meaning and memories for you?! Do you have a place that brings up those feeling of the past?
Long ago a huge landslide of rocks roared into the Columbia River near Cascade Locks and eventually formed a natural stone bridge that spanned the river. The bridge came to be called Bridge of the Gods. A wrinkled old woman brought fire to man as a gift. The Lady of Fire lived in the center of the arch, tending the only fire. Loowit, as she was called, was so faithful in her task, and so kind to the Indians who came for fire, that she was noticed by the great chief Tyee Sahale. He decided to give her the gift of eternal life. But Loowit wept, because she did not want to live forever as an old woman. Sahale could not take back the gift, but he told Loowit he could grant her one wish. Her wish, was to be young and beautiful, and it was granted. Fame of her wondrous beauty spread far and wide. One day Sahale's two sons came. Wyeast came from the land of the Multnomahs in the south to see Loowit. Just as he arrived at Tamanawas Bridge, his brother Klickitat came thundering down from the north. Both brothers fell in love with Loowit, but she could not choose between them. Klickitat and Wyeast had a tremendous fight. They burned villages. Whole forests disappeared in flames. Sahale watched all of this fury and became very angry. He frowned. He smote the Bridge, and it fell in the river where it still boils in angry protest. He smote the three lovers, too; but, even as he punished them, he loved them. So, where each lover fell, he raised up a mighty mountain. Because Loowit was beautiful her mountain was a symmetrical cone, dazzling white. Mount Saint Helens. Wyeast's mountain still lifts his head in pride. Mount Hood. Klickitat , for all his rough ways, had a tender heart. As Mount Adams, he bends his head in sorrow, weeping to see the beautiful maiden Loowit wrapped in snow. #Lewalatla #pacificnorthwest #destinationpnw #pnw #pnwonderland #cascademountains #MountSaintHelens #pnwlife #washingtonstate #hiking #trail #snow #ringoffire #ourpnw #awesome_earth #nature #naturelovers #naturephotography #westernwashington #pnwwonderland #pnw_lady

Slide to view all! Trip to Mount Saint Helen! Nearly didn’t make it to the top, clutch was burning out 😂!!! @redsw20 and I had to lower windows do to the smell and smoke! I remember we were in 5th gear, dropping to 4th, then 3rd and soon after 2nd! We were dead last and losing speed! Up in the mountains there was a bit of a down hill with a left turn, not wanting to lose sight of the rest and get lost, I stepped on it and managed to see the tail of cars right before they turned out of the main road! : : #toyota #mr2 #sw20 #jdmculture #midshiprunabout #legends #trd #jdm #pnw #pnwonderland #carporn #dreams #mountains #drive #carmeets #yolo #memories #views #primemr2 #live #carproblems #mountsainthelens #frs #truejdm #mylife #nevergiveup #madeit
Climbing Mount Saint Helens for the first time when I was 17 opened my eyes to mountaineering. It taught me that I was capable of more than I imagined and gave me a thirst to climb higher and harder. My third summit, this morning, just reminded me of the special place I’ve got in my heart for this peak. And as I’m considering pursuing mountain guiding or something of that nature as a career option for my future, it is always special to return and remember that it was here where everything first started.

Sunrise trio: Hood, St Helens, and Adams.

Hoffstadt Creek Bridge. 370 feet high. 600 feet across. 12.6 million dollars. This is actually a replacement of the previous bridge that was destroyed after #mtsthelens erupted. We were on our way to Mt. St. Helens, when we saw the cloud ceiling up ahead and we knew that going any higher in elevation, we’d lose visibility and wouldn’t get any good shots. ⁣ ⁣ Luckily for us, there were zero other people on this road and we took advantage to get this clip. ⁣ ⁣ 🛸⁣ 🛸⁣ 🛸⁣ 🛸⁣ 🛸⁣ ⁣ #hoffstadtbridge #hoffstadtcreekbridge #sainthelens #amazingbride #modernmarvels #amazingengineering #engineering #coolbridge #djimavicpro #djiglobal #djiglobal_official #dronelife #birdseyeview #droneshot #droneshots #twenty4sevendrones #polarpro #polarprofilters #picturelinepicoftheday #pictureline #dronetography #dronetographer #visitwashington #mountsainthelens #dronevideo #droneporn #instagood

Not a bad place for a first hike of the year! Even Mount Saint Helens made an appearance on the horizon.

Sunrise on Monitor Ridge during my ascent up Mount Saint Helens earlier this May. The way the light painted the trees red was absolutely amazing. It was the last glimpse of color we had before entering the clouds, and it left us with a longing to come out the other side. . . . #WA #washington #washingtonstate #westernwashington #PNW #sunrise #explorepnw #mountsainthelens #explorewashingtonstate #nature #pnwsunrise #mtsthelens #monitorridge #mountainclimbing #washingtonsunrise #landscape #landscapephotography #nikonusa #naturephotography #nikond7200 #srnnaturephotography #nikon #nikonphotography #d7200 #washingtontrails #ecotourism #cottoncandyskies #wispyclouds #paintedskies #pnwwonderland
