I have been to Mt. Saint Helens for the past couple of years and have never come away with anything post worthy. This image is special to me because it marks a milestone in that this Mountain is no longer my Nemesis and I didn't have to leave my home at 1:30 in the morning to catch sunrise. My husband built a platform for me in my Element so that we could sleep comfortably and still be able to store a ton of gear underneath us. I am a morning person and summer sunsets are brutal for me because I can rarely stay awake past 10 pm. I am not booshie by any means but I do require a level of comfort that my previous car camping experiences has lacked. My husband has pimped out my ride which has made overnight car camping trips quite enjoyable. After a long unfruitful hike and shooting sunset we climbed in the back and got some much needed rest and recuperation. I got up in the morning threw on my hood and took a two minute hike to a pretty awesome view. My husband rocks :)
