Mount St Helens

This little guy was on the road to Windy Ridge at Mount St Helens on the eastern side.  Unfortunately, the road was closed about half way up.   Forest Service said there was too much road damage further on.   Judging from the road condition prior to that point they have some broad criteria for “too damaged.”

Anyway the point where the road was closed was at the point where some of the most famous photos of the eruption were captured.

He was up about 30 feet in the tree.   I was near the far edge of the zoom.   He was jumping around.    Should have probably stopped down a bit and switch to manual focus.    Autofocus was more interested in the fir needles, of course.   But, there he is.
