    Mount St. Helens 30th Anniversary
    After the eruption, Mount St. Helens and the surrounding area were designated as the Mount St. Helens National Volcanic Monument, under the jurisdiction of the United States Forest Service. This view, shot from the north of the mountain on May 19, 1982, clearly shows the large crater that replaced the mountain peak.
