Mount Saint Helens or Bust
It's been over 30 years, and the treeline is still barely starting to recover from the famous volcanic blast.
Eight foot diameter trees were snapped off their roots and the sound barrier was smothered for 30 miles around. My uncle remembers his apple farm getting covered in ash over 100 miles away, and a visitor from Ohio told me that ash snowed into her pool from that fateful day.
That's one mountain I think I'll skip climbing.
