Thursday, August 25, We leave Mt. Rainier and head for Mt. St. Helens in Washington. It is only a short time less than 2 hours we arrive in the area. First we stop at the Visitors Center and read about the history and also see a film on it. We then leave and stop at a State Park across the street, The rate was $29.00 for elec/water but also they wanted $10.00 per day for a Discovery Pass.
We decided to keep going and stopped at Mt. St. Helens Resort about 6 miles later. Their full hookup rate was $22./night. We paid and stayed the night. It was still only 1 pm so we unhitches and traveled 47 miles up the road to The Mt. St. Helens viewing point and watched 2 movies on it. When the screen opened up, there was the Mountain in full view..Ahh..Ahh!!
We walked around and took in the view. It was a long drive up and back 94 miles all together but very scenic overlooks. We stopped at "Patty's Place" for supper. We ate on the back porch overlooking the river behind the restaurant. The food was good, but they are know for their Cobbler Desert. But we declined, too full. Back to camper ZZZZZ
