USA - Washington

Mt. St. Helens and Spirit Lake

This card was sent 39 years ago today from Klama, Washington on November 29, 1977.  My parents sent this card to my aunt.  

While this card is awesome because of the fact that it is old and it has a family connection, people who know recent history will notice that this card was sent a few years before Mount Saint Helens and Spirit Lake were forever changed by the May 18, 1980 eruption, killing approximately 57 people and changing the face of both the mountain and Spirit Lake.
