While hiking the Lahar of Mount St. Helens in spring, my friend and I came upon some stormy spring weather. There were a few times where we had to find the nearest cluster of trees for shelter from the cold rain showers. We still ended up soaked. It was interesting to see the devastation left by the 1980 eruption. I also found it interesting that this dead tree had branches on only one side. The side without was facing the volcano.
