Image Caption: STS066-121-061 Mount Saint Helens, Washington, U.S.A. November 1994
This low-oblique, southwest-looking photograph features Mount Saint Helens Volcano and its blast zone that appears as a bright, snow-covered area void of forest cover. Evident within the caldera is a dome that now reaches a height of almost 1800 feet (549 meters) and does not appear to be growing at this time. The checkered pattern east and southeast of Mount Saint Helens shows areas of clearcutting by lumber companies. Mount Adams Volcano, the second highest peak within the Cascade Range, can be seen at the bottom left of the photograph. (For a description of the Mount Saint Helens eruption of May 18, 1980, see photograph STS-028-088-026.)
