The third area covered was the Mt St Helens Volcano, just over the border in Washington State. Bill followed the build up and eruption on May 18th 1980. His last day in USA 1999 was spent on a day tour to Johnston Ridge Observatory, 5 miles from the caldera. The observatory commemorates David Johnston who was blown up in the eruption. This observatory is buried under snow for months each year! The DVD shown was Winter Blues on how the UP Railway copes with all the snow of winter!
Next meeting is on Tuesday 7th June at 0930.
We start our trip through the Canadian Rockies, going from east to west, over 4 sessions. The first segment is from Calgary to Field. Bill does not have a DVD of the area but will show a terrific DVD on the famous Cumbres and Toltec Scenic Railroad in Colorado and New Mexico.
