United States of America: Mount Saint Helens

Mount Saint Helens is a few hours from Seattle, by car. The area is famous for a devastating volcanic eruption that occurred there in 1980. Its marks are quite visible: whole areas have completely lost their vegetation, other contain trees that died due to toxic fumes, and animals are scarce.

This is America... drive a car!

The best way to go to Mount Saint Helens is to drive by car from Seattle.

Travel tips: Check local museums to understand what happened in the area.
