Mount St. Helens at Pullman, Washington

On 18 May 1980, I was living in Pullman, Washington, attending high school. This was shortly after we had moved from Ohio to Washington and it was a completely new experience for me.

The photo here was taken with a Kodak 110 camera, producing a small negative and grainy image at the best of times. My viewpoint here was the top of one of the reservoir buildings on College Hill, looking west. The view was of a sunset in the wrong direction, which was weird. Shortly after this, the ash started accumulating and became muddy. It still exists as a substrate under the wheat fields, fertilizing them.
