Today turned out to be a great day to spend volunteering on Mount St. Helens. The weather was perfect and the views from the crater rim were awesome. There were a lot of people on the mountain today and I got to talk to quite a few different groups.

Despite climbing the mountain a bunch of times this year, it is still my favorite mountain in the Cascades. I am still fascinated by the crater and the view never gets old.

Back From the Desert

It’s been a bit quiet around here lately since I’ve been traveling. I went to Las Vegas and Phoenix and had a great time. It was nice to catch up with some friends and check out some of the places I used to visit while I lived in Phoenix (Papago Brewery is still my favorite!). Also climbed Camelback Mountain twice, which was a nice change from the hikes I’ve been doing at home.

I spent a day checking out some of the hotels along the Vegas Strip as well. Very impressive!
