Mother Nature wins!

Well we found it…the road up to the ‘devastated’ area on the NE face of Mt. St. Helens. The same road we took so many years ago. No overwhelming sadness but rather I felt like singing Ode to Joy or some such. Between the reforestation, over 18 million trees have been planted, and Mother Nature things are returning to normal.
There are two basic areas: the memorial monument and the forest. The memorial monument has been left to nature while the forest area has been processed through removal of the dead wood and replanting. The contrast is stark but also does what is intended with the one showing man’s care in helping out Mother Nature and the other showing what she can do on her own!
Pictures are still in the camera but I hope to post them soon.
