Image Caption: This view of Mt. St. Helens (46.5N, 122.0W), taken 12 years after the volcanic eruption on 18 May 1980, in which the top 1300 ft. of the 9,677 ft. mountain was blown away, shows the rapid vegetation recovery within the blast area. Many fir trees have grown to heights of 20 ft. within the 150 square mile devastated area. Mt. Adams, an extinct volcano is just to the west and Mt. Rainier is to the north. Checkerboard logging can be seen throughout.
