Laurie, before the volcano
This week’s Throwback Thursday takes us to a place that no longer exists. Spirit Lake was spectacularly beautiful, a church summer camp smack on the top of Mount St. Helens.
Remember Mount St. Helens? Blew up in 1980, taking a lot of people and this lake with it? It was so beautiful…and the lake was scattered with little bits of floating lava rock.
Camping was a thing we did, every summer, a cheap week or three in the country that, although meaning tons of work for the Mom of the family, was as much of a bonding experience as a holiday.
