This was the day I had planned to climb Mt. St. Helens. Of course, with all the earthquakes
and steam erruptions, all climbing permits were revoked. So, instead of climbing the mountain,
we walked just around the outside of the restricted zone -- from Norway Pass to Johnston Ridge
and back via Mount Margaret. It was a long hike. It would have been a nice one-way hike if
a car shuttle had been possible.
