Lave Caves at Mt. St. HelensThe Ape Caves are lava caves formed during the eruption of Mount St. Helens.
The Upper Ape Cave, a longer trail, captured the interest of my group, so we set out to “walk” through it. It turned out to be more of an adventure than originally thought, but we survived with only a few scratches and bruises acquired while climbing over huge mounds of rocks in the semi-dark. I recommend bringing headlamps!
