35 Years Ago Today, Mount St. Helens Erupted. Here’s How Things Have Changed (And NOT Changed) Since That Day.

One of the darkest and scariest days in our state’s history happened 35 years ago today. On a Sunday morning after a small-mid size earthquake, Mount St. Helens blew her top. Today, the area is filled with remnants along with a rebirth and regrowth which includes some really cool tourist attractions and hiking trails.

About AJ

Your afternoon host AJ has been in Seattle for over 5 years and SO much has happened in his life since moving here. He and his wife of 7 years Nicole, had their first baby (Max...he is now 2) and they bought their first home here. When AJ isn't on the air, at a sporting event supporting one of our local teams (ESPECIALLY the Sounders and Seahawks) or hosting an event for one of the organizations that he works with including Making Strides Against Breast Cancer, March For Babies, Susan G Komen and Washington Trails Association, he is more than likely climbing a mountain! "I love everything this place has to offer, from world-class entertainment, to the incredible food to all of its natural beauty with so many amazing mountains and trails at our doorstep! I LOVE the Pacific Northwest and am proud to call it home and do what I love to do with an incredible group of people."
