Take a few minutes to check out the Miners Car Exhibit and imagine what it must have been like to have been here on May 18, 1980 when the volcano blew. The tread winds its way through the small fir trees and fireweed from the parking area to the lake. Along the way, stop and read the interpretive sign about “Survivors”, explaining how frogs and brook trout survived the blast and ash under a covering of snow and ice.
