"Vancouver, Vancouver. This is it!" 5/18/80

Recommended Posts


May 18, 1980 - Mt. St. Helen's erupted.  Accuweather has a nice article on their site and on Twitter. 

The Multiple photos are the last images Geologist David Johnston took before his death. He was 5 miles from the volcano.

He unloaded his film, placed them in a container, then inside his backpack and fell on the backpack to protect the images.

He died moments later.  Incredible devotion to his work   



Below, Twitter - Copy and Paste, could not be embedded, more images.
