Interested in a 2- or 3-day field trip to Mount Saint Helens this summer? Please take the survey below to help us get a trip organized to raise funds for our nonprofit.
The trip would begin in Bellingham but could have rendezvous points along the way. We could include a visit to Ape Cave lava tube [either the easy lower section or the more challenging upper section- 1- or 1.5- mile walks, respectively], a 1-mile walk on the surface of the Cave Basalt lava flow, a 1- to 5-mile round trip hike along the Johnston Ridge trail for stupendous views into the 1980 devastated zone and crater, and the new lava dome, and a 2-mile hike along the Hummocks Trail through the debris of the catastrophic landslide of May 18, 1980. At least one, and maybe two, MBVRC geologists would serve as guides.
