Well, I visited Mt St Helens on Friday, but... sadly I was unable to see much of the mountain or the crater caused by the eruption in 1980:(. But, here are a few pics that you might still enjoy. I did spend some time with two very entertaining and lively gentleman who watched the mountain erupt. It was an experience unlike any other. Nothing beats a first-hand account. 17 days and counting to Europe! (For those of you who haven't seen it, there's a countdown on the bottom of the page!)

Okay, for those of you who haven't heard: I am going to Europe after I finish my assignment in Seattle. I fly out of Louisville to London on September 16th and I come back on October 16th. Yeeee! Can't wait! Oooh - AND - Joseph is flying out to see me on September 5th and on the 6th, we are driving home to the big K-Y. Proposed POA: Big Sky country, through Yellowstone, across South Dakota, (perhaps a stop in to say hi to our favorite aunt and uncle?:) and then across Missouri. I am completely excited. Any advice on traveling in Europe and avoiding jet lag would be greatly appreciated. Cheers!
