May 18, 1980 —

Ash” Wednesday

Forty years ag0 on May 18th, 1980, we had the job of getting our golf course back into playing condition after the eruption of Mount St. Helens left a layer of several inches of volcanic ash.

These photos give an idea of the issues, and these are color photos — it was a grey world for a while,  You can still find ash layers in the soil on the course from this “ashfall”.
