At 8:32 Sunday morning, May 18,1980, Mount St. Helens erupted.

The unforgettable sight of this cataclysmic event is still is imprinted in the memories of all who watched this drama unfold. Your destination on this tour is the Mount St. Helens National Monument.

Shaken by an earthquake measuring 5.1 on the Richter scale, the north face of this towering symmetrical mountain collapsed in a massive rock debris avalanche that decimated everything in its path. In 1982, the President and Congress created the 110,000 acre National Volcanic Monument for the purpose of research, recreation, and education. During your visit, you will witness for yourself how the environment is regrowing and reshaping the landscape naturally since the event took place.

On your two-hour journey up to the Monument, you will also relive Lewis & Clark's journey from the comfort of your motor coach and view many distinguishing features and landmarks along the way. At the Monument itself, the visitors' center reveals amazing views of Mount St. Helens, including the crater, lava dome and blast zone.

Before rejoining your coach for the return to Astoria, a lunch consisting of a sandwich, fruit, cookie and a beverage will be provided at a picnic area.

Please note: This tour includes approximately 2 hours of moderate walking/standing and is available to guests who utilize a collapsible wheelchair, are able to make their way on and off the coach and have a companion to assist them. Those guests with mobility concerns are cautioned to evaluate their personal level of ability and stamina. Casual, weather-appropriate clothing (jacket and umbrella) and comfortable, flat walking shoes are suggested. Snow conditions may prevent the coach from going all the way to the Mount St. Helens Visitor Center. If that is the case, you will stop at Silverlake and the Forestry Learning Center which still affords views of Mt. St. Helens.
