Since we were just a few miles (30 some) away from Mount St Helens we decided to take the drive.
Oh what a drive it was.
The 30 some miles of winding roads and the edge of the hill side on the other. It took us over an hour to make it up the steep hill side. Our truck had a half a tank of gas when we started the trek and we were on E as we came down. But it was worth it. The views were stunning.
When we got to windy pass it sure was windy (I guess that how it got its name).
There was also a large set of stairs that lead to the top of a of a look out.
Once we got up to the top we sat down and had a picnic.
To my amazement the little man walked all the way up AND down.
This was just day one of fun filled family vacation.
