Went up where you did in 1991. Sure has changed over the years.
So, you were one of the people that helped clean up the ash one jar at a time?
I think more people have misplaced/lost their jars of ash than ones that still have them.
You're right it has changed up there but at the same time there is still a lot that's close to the same like all those logs in Spirit Lake, the trees laying on the ground pointed North and the mud flow of the Toutle River.
If you get a chance go up there again, it's always changing and always interesting.

Thanks. I'm glad you popped in to see what's going on.
