A visit to Mount St Helens Volcanic Monument has been on my PNW bucket list for a while. I had the opportunity to visit and hike in the area on the 38th anniversary since the explosion.
Today, June 8th, is the anniversary of the 1906 Antiquities Act. This past month many protected areas of the United States have been under direct siege. On April 26, President Trump ordered the Secretary of the Interior to review over 50 national monuments created since 1996.
