Jul 28, 2010 - Ashford - Seaquest SP

I love Washington State. Where else do they advertise free coffee on the freeway?! This is usually provided by 'seniors' who are representing a charity. Okay, you do end up throwing in a few coins - but all for a good cause! Moreover, the seniors are always ready for a friendly chat - and provide biscuits/cake as well! First stop, Castle Rock for barbecue provisions. Second stop, the Mount St. Helens Visitors Centre. We walk the boardwalks on the edge of Silver Lake.

Today we arrived at Seaquest State Park at the base of Mt. St. Helens volcano. The park is beautiful and quiet. We unpacked, set everything up and headed to the top of the volcano. On the drive up you could see all the changes the explosion has made on the landscape.
