“This is an image of Mount St. Helens, taken from the Johnston Ridge Observatory. The Observatory and VolcanoCam are located at an elevation of approximately 4,500 feet, about five miles from the volcano. You are looking approximately south-southeast across the North Fork Toutle River Valley.”
There was a weather update when I visited. “Weather Note — October 06, 2004 at 9:00 am PDT — There is nothing wrong with the above image. You are viewing rain and clouds at Mount St. Helens right now as a weather front moves through the Pacific Northwest.” Which is really cool since the image I was viewing looked like steam was rolling out of the volcano, on second glance it did really look like storm clouds like they posted.
And if you want images of the eruptions, hang in there. They are going to be posting pictures from those eruptions and a video of the first eruption. I’ve been checking back daily. I’m curious to see how it all looked.
