Today we went to Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Park. It was pure fun and adventure. We hiked in Ape Cave, a 1,900 year old cave formed by lava flow. The cave ranged from 25′ tall to about 2′ tall. Even though it was about 78 degrees and sunny on the surface, it was about 48 degrees and pitch black inside. With absolutely no light source, the cave is somewhat eerie but thoroughly exciting. Later, we went hiking up toward Mount St. Helens, then we went hiking along a river with beautiful waterfalls and massive cliffs of volcanic rock, some of which is over 35 million years old. An amazing day to say the least!
