One of the benefits to volunteering on Mount St. Helens is I get to assist with guided climbs to the crater rim. The climb I did this past weekend was a Geology on High climb where a geologist leads the climb and talks about the different features of the mountain. I learned a lot of new and interesting things about Mount St. Helens past and also enjoyed seeing the clients make it up the mountain for the first time.
The weather started out really nice but by the top we reached the crater rim the clouds had moved in. We did get small break in the clouds which gave us a small glimpse into the crater.
