Forty years on

Forty years on, the eruption of Mt. St. Helens remains an important milestone in the history of the Pacific Northwest. I was a little kid, living in Oregon with my parents and three siblings.

I don’t remember anything about it, but am obsessed with the subject. My cousin Mike remembers me telling him about it and Sasquatch at a family reunion at some point in the 1980s.

Someone at KGW, the NBC affiliate in Portland, has recently uploaded raw footage of Mt. St. Helens to its YouTube channel.
