I wanted to post on this 40th anniversary of a significant event in my life. I already did a blog post about it in 2017 , but wanted to do one again with some added family photos. Above is a photo of the Cascades that I believe my grandfather took earlier in 1980. And below are the notations in our family cabin book about the aftermath of the eruption.
I am fascinated enough about this eruption I did read this book about it 3 years ago. I would recommend it.
