Driving Miss Donna - what does this mean? Whenever I want to go somewhere, if Don is home he will usually drive. He always says he is driving miss Donna! This blog is for our travels, usually with our truck and fifth wheel trailer, but sometimes in our Journey. Don retired October 2011 so hopefully the travelling part will increase! When we are not vacationing check in for updates about our life at home and our wonderful family:)

Mt St Helens and Area

We arrived in Seaquest State Park Wednesday.  We decided to drive around and explore the towns around, as the  weather was not exactly great for mountain viewing.  No surprise by this point that it was raining!  But we had a nice campsite, and power again, so I took advantage and watched Dirty Dancing.  This is only about the tenth time I have watched it so there were still some new moves to learn:)

Today we made the drive up the mountain.  There were places you could see the volcanic action form 1980 but unfortunately you could not see the top of the mountain.  We took one of my chosen scenic routes home, which don;t always work out:)  But oh well.

Below are some beautiful photos of Mt St Helens that we took in 2005, the last trip with our  old reliable 1985 24’ pull type trailer.

Tomorrow we are headed to Cape Disappointment State Park.  This is one of our favorite locations.  It is hard to find a campground that is not within a minute’s walk to the ocean.

Talk to you from there!
