So close you can touch it

One last shot of Mt St Helens. Technically the park and all of the facilities, except the Visitor Center about 5 miles from I-5, are closed. This is at a little rest area a few miles up Spirit Lake Highway. It's also the Forest Learning Center and a great place to spot Elk on the valley floor below.

 

Although the gates were closed it was easy to walk in. A couple other groups also stopped and did the same thing. At this level it really felt like spring. Less than 4 miles away snow was everywhere!
