It was such a humbling experience to be there among such a huge powerful mountain.
We stopped at the Johnson observatory, which overlooks the north face of the mountain, where the eruption occurred in 1980.
After watching a short video with footage of the day the volcano erupted it was hard not to be in awe of the power of nature.
We listened to a lecture from a ranger with stories and recordings of radio transmissions that day. It's amazing how fast so many lives were changed and how much we've learned from the mounatain.
