    Camped at Mt St Helens fri nite. It was a party at at the Cascade Hgts overlook! thats where they had the road closed.
    Found a Helicopter landing pad just this side of the Ryan Lake/Meta lake turnout.
    A great campsite...plenty of firewood.
    A bunch of college girls were camping right at the overlook.
    When the moon came up it was awesome!
    The coyotes started yelping about 10:30.
    the warming hut at Wakepish was empty.
    if anybody wants to camp on the Heli-pad let me know,
    I'll give you directions.

    I had a helicopter try to sit down on my evening bivouac in Vietnam. Thought I was having a nightmare at first with all the blowing dust and that demon light focused on me.
    I don't want to repeat the experience.
