10 miles of hiking • 1750' elevation gain •

A friend invited me to go to Mt St Helen's with her yesterday, so off we went. The road up was icy in spots but fine. Just enough snow to make it beautiful. We parked at the Hummocks and road walked to The south Coldwater lake TH. As usual, beautiful views everywhere. We continued up towards Coldwater Peak and went about a mile beyond the junction with the trail down to the lake. Then we hit our turnaround time and headed back. Great company and a wonderful trip.

It looks like you may have had the whole place to yourselves! I was just wondering what conditions were like at MSH. Thank you!

We saw two people at the Hummocks TH heading up that way and heard a couple in the distance having a heated discussion about the slowness of her pace. That was it.

Nice day to be there. I was down at the lake in your first picture.
