A stunning day of no exercise but amazing beauty as friends of mine flew me to the state fair 🙂 Being that this is Washington, that flight included some amazing views. We left the fair early so Kevin could fly us closer to Mt Rainier, which then included Mt St Helens, as it was so close and the skies were calm and clear. Mt St Helens is surreal… Desolate and stunning. To fly over it and imagine the volcano blowing away the entire side of the mountain, well it’s just mind blowing. Flying that close we could also see the steam that still comes up from the lava dome and see all of the timber that slid down the mountain into the lake just next to the Mt. This had been my favorite birthday gift this year; experiences make the best gifts.
