And here was the view from my front yard...about 70 miles to the south.

I remember it well, it was all over the news of course. I actually had a small vial of volcanic dust from that eruption that I kept for years. Not sure what happened to it.

I honestly don't remember this as I would have only been about 6 years old at the time. In fact, when I think back on things, I really can't remember much of anything that far back other than a few memories of when I was about 7 years old and go my first Atari in about Christmas of '81 or '82, and then most of my memories seem to be in check starting around 1984 when I was about 9 - 10 years old.

Unseen Photos of Mount St. Helens Eruption Uncovered From Forgotten Camera
A vintage camera from the early 20th century containing a roll of undeveloped film has yielded an extraordinary set of images showing the 1980 eruption of Mount St. Helens, considered among the most disastrous volcanic eruptions in US history.
