A few months back we went camping to Seaquest State Park. This was our first time there. Our site number was 12 and above is a picture of it. We liked the site, as is typical of the northwest we were surrounded by tall evergreen trees. The site was quite big. Overall we really liked the campground – the restrooms were close by and so was the water tap. The site had enough shade that we were not exposed to the sun and gave good privacy.
Around 60 miles from the campground is the Johnston Observatory from where you can view St Helens. There are a lot of trails too. This was the first time I’d seen a volcano – active or passive; and the view just mesmerized me. Maybe being a local I didn’t expect much. We saw the movie at the observatory and also read the stories of survivors and otherwise. It was a totally different experience. The views of St Helens and from nearby trails were gorgeous!
