Detailed Description

First of two photographs showing what happened during the first rainy season after the explosive eruption of Mount St. Helens in 1980. The eruption generated a large pyrocalstic surge and tephra fall that deposited loose gravel-sized and sand-sized rock debris to a thickness of about 1 m and leveled nearly all vegetation in this area, about 8 km northeast of the volcano.
