"For more than 100 years, Mount St. Helens had been quite, a beautiful mountain surrounded by forests. Hikers climbed its winding trails . Skiers raced down its snowy slopes. Children splashed in its crystal clear lakes.

And soon it would explode with the power of ten million tons of dynamite. In the minutes before the eruption, eleven-year-old Jessie Marlowe and her best friends Eddie and Sam were in a forest near St. Helens. The day was warm and bright, the sky brilliant blue. St. Helens rose up over them, it's perfect triangle peak sparkling with snow. And then, Kaboom!” That is all I will read to day so I will see you later.
