Mt. St. Helens
Mt. St. Helens as seen from the Boundary Trail northeast of the volcano, in May 2021. This is close to Loowit Viewpoint. The crater and breach can be seen to the left side of the mountain, and in the foreground the headwaters of the Toutle River can be seen downcutting through hummocky landslide deposits that were put down after the blast zone scoured the area.
