Day 5 - MOUNT ST. HELENS NATIONAL VOLCANIC MONUMENT
Until 1980, this mountain was one of Washington's snow-capped jewels which beckoned hikers and outdoor enthusiasts.  On May 18, 1980 an explosion of incredible force blew the top, 1,313 feet, and much of the north face off Mount St. Helens, releasing a mile-wide avalanche that destroyed everything in its path, even clogging the Columbia River with logs and silt.  Trees have been replanted and we will take you up the mountain to Johnson Ridge Visitor Center for a marvelous view of the area and a look at the exhibits of devastation caused by the eruption.  It is an extremely beautiful area once again.  Continue south to the lively and lovely city of Portland, where the Williamette River ambles through.  Your hotel is centrally located.  Meals BD
