Today marks the 31st anniversary of the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens. The Johnston Ridge Observatory is open today (free admissions). There will be a special anniversary film at 10:00am.
If you are unable to make it, enjoy the VolcanoCam views today.
Spring has yet to return to Mount St. Helens. The beginning of May finds snow, snowdrifts and a continuing avalanche danger. The VolcanoCam HD camera is working just fine, showing us clouds and the occasional icicle. The VolcanoCam Classic camera appears to have a problem transmitting images. We can remotely access the server but the camera isn't responding. We are working to correct the problem as best as we can. We apologize for the inconvenience.
