#538 — A scenic picture taken of Spirit Lake which is located right by Mount St. Helens which is in Gifford Pinchot National Forest, Washington. This picture is taken looking in the opposite direction of Mount St. Helens towards Mt. Rainier which you can see the tip of over the hill in the right corner. Spirit Lake is situated across the blast path of Mount St Helens and is one of the enduring features of the devastation of the 1980 Mount St. Helens eruption. Floating over the surface of the water is a forest of destroyed trees. Just over two decades after the eruption, Spirit Lake has seen drastic changes. Once, it used to be a recreational outpost for children and adults of all ages. Now, due to the floating forest and other factors, the lake has become a tourist attraction that remains evidence of the Mount St. Helens eruption. Spirit Lake was once part of an ideal picture-postcard setting, with Spirit Lake in foreground and snowcapped Mt. Saint Helens as a backdrop. The scene at Spirit Lake changed dramatically on May 18, 1980, when the Mt. Saint Helens volcano erupted after being dormant for 123 years, sending a deep blanket of ash upon the lake and destroying the beautiful scene.

#164 — A beautiful picture of Mt. Rainier shot during the beginning of June. This photo was taken near Paradise in Mt. Rainier's National Forest. "The Mountain", as it's known by natives, draws your eyes like a magnet when it is visible and not invisible behind clouds. It also draws over two million visitors each year. Mount Rainier and the surrounding foothills were designated as a national park in 1899. On clear days, Mount Rainier dominates the Seattle - Tacoma skyline, towering over the metropolis in breathtaking beauty. Mount Rainierís highest elevation is 14,410 feet which is located at the summit, also called Columbia Crest. The glaciers on Mount Rainier are the sources of five major river systems: Nisqually, Cowlitz, White, Carbon, and Puyallup. These rivers provide water for plants, animals, and humans throughout western Washington.
