Mount St. Helens – 35 Years Later

Mount St. Helens Eruption blackening the sky – KOMO TV News

In the morning on May 18, 1980, in the southwestern part of Washington State, Mount St. Helens erupted. It killed 57 people, while throwing the eastern part of the state into a nighttime like darkness, clogging a river, and flattening trees. You can watch the local news broadcast at this link.

This eruption even created a new canyon, called Lava Canyon. What I find interesting when looking for a website about the canyon, is most of the websites are Christian. I did read one website that was not Christian and it said we (Christians) are wrong. Not about Lava Canyon, but saying the Grand Canyon could have been formed in the same way. This person said that fast moving mud and water do not make curves. But just looking at the photos at icr.org web page proves that’s wrong. This person also said fast moving water would not leave vertical walls in the dirt. Again photos proves him wrong.

The photo above as well as the one next to this paragraph reminds me of the sixth seal in Revelation 6:12-14. I watched as the Lamb broke the sixth seal, and there was a great earthquake. The sun became as dark as black cloth, and the moon became as red as blood. Then the stars of the sky fell to the earth like green figs falling from a tree shaken by a strong wind. The sky was rolled up like a scroll, and all of the mountains and islands were moved from their places. I wrote about it in my post Revelation 6: Opening 6 Of The 7 Seals.

I found a website from the US Forest Service for Lava Canyon. This looks like it would be a fun place to go. Click on the link and watch the video. I found a lot websites for hiking in the area. Now I want to go. A great summer activity. Just don’t forget the camera.

Here is a link to an eye witness account of a man who was in high school at the time, 300 miles (480 kilometers) away.
