SR archive photo (May 1980)/J. Bart Rayniak

Today is the 31st Anniversay of the eruption of Mount St. Helens, so to mark the day I dug out a picture of the event taken by SR Valley Voice photographer J. Bart Rayniak. This has always been one of my favorite photos and it hangs on a wall in a hallway in the downtown SR newsroom. We also have on our web site a great “then and now” slideshow by SR photographer Christopher Anderson.
