2013 – Mount St. Helens, WA

Mount St. Helen’s hiking.


Woke up Friday morning with and itch to go for a drive. Destination… Anywhere.

Alex and I wound up dragging my sister and her family along with us for the day on this adventure.

We found ourselves heading towards the Ape Caves at Mount St. Helen’s. These caves are lava tubes that are walkable with the correct equipment. Sweatshirt, good shoes and a lantern or flashlight.

Sophie was a little hesitant at first because of the darkness and rugged terrain. But she came around and ended up having a great time. Sean was having a blast jumping out of the dark and scaring everyone as they passed him. Even the grown ups got in on the fun of scaring each other.

After the Ape Caves the Wilson’s had to head home.


Alex and I went on looking for a suspension bridge that a worker told us about. We eventually found it and got some neat photos.
