STS064-51-25 Mount Saint Helens National Volcanic Monument, Washington State, U.S.A. September 1994.
This spectacular, near-vertical photograph taken in September 1994 shows the 8360-foot (2548-meter) Mount Saint Helens volcano with its developing lava dome and expansive pumice plain. The grayish-colored area of the blast zone from the 1980 eruption extends outward to the northwest, north, and northeast of the volcano. North of the volcano lie three major lakes from east to west—Spirit Lake (the largest), the elongated Coldwater Lake, and Castle Lake. South of Mount Saint Helens are clear-cut patterns (lumbering) interspersed throughout the darker green forested region of the Gifford Pinchot National Forest.
