Tidbits of History

There are 18 volcanoes in the Cascade Mountains but only one holds claim to the deadliest volcanic event in United States history.

On May 18, 1980 Mt. St. Helens erupted in a huge display of power. The eruption was expected and preceded by numerous earthquakes and evacuation warnings but 57 people still lost their lives. Numerous homes were destroyed, roads were decimated and railways were buried.

Experts say that one of the main reasons so many people were in harms way is because of the direction St. Helens erupted. Instead of erupting straight into the air the side of St. Helens gave way after an earthquake and the pent up lava, steam and gas exploded out the side of the volcano. The pyroclastic flow from the side of the volcano engulfed many people who would have otherwise been safe. The eruption lasted over 9 hours and emitted a plume of gasses and ash that rose 12 miles into the air. The ash floated on the winds to the northeast and was collected as far away as Edmonton in Albert, Canada.

As the ice and snow on the mountain melted lahar flows and floods ripped though the river valley. After the eruption most people referred to the area around the mountain as a moonscape. Trees were pushed over, meadows filled with ash and rivers were muddy with debris.

Today, St. Helens is still the most active volcano in the Cascade Range. Even as the most active volcano, St. Helens is a place of beauty and a place to contemplate both nature’s power and its majesty. It is also a place to hike, camp, fish and enjoy the outdoors.

    This St. Helens chicken soup is fabulous! I discovered it 2 years ago at the Oregon State Fair in Samem OR and I am completely hooked. It’s my go-to comfort food (I’m writing this during the COVID-19 crisis).
    Pro-tip: add some canned mushrooms and about a 1/4 cup of barley when preparing.
