|Mount St. Helens from Norway Pass.|
Bear Camp offers excellent camping, and is situated close enough to Mount Margaret to serve as a base camp for a hike to this magnificent summit. Watch for elk herds in the area!
One of the highlights early in the hike is Norway Pass. A great wildflower area, this pass affords excellent views down to Spirit Lake and Mount St. Helens.
The image above is not my favorite image from the area - not even in the top 5. But it has been popular for publications. It has appeared in a couple different wall calendars (one multiple times), and is currently the image for the month of May in Smith-Western's Mountains of Washington wall calendar. It will also be appearing in the June issue of a national magazine publication.
I hope to have more Mount St. Helens news to share very soon - stay tuned! In the meantime, you can view more images from this monument at in my Central/South Cascades gallery.
As always, thanks for visiting!
