Hiking in the Ape Cave

We found ourselves three miles away from the Ape Cave lava tube in Gifford Pinchot National Forest just south of Mount St. Helens and decided to take a quick detour to check it out. Since this was not a planned hike we didn’t have headlamps or flashlights with us (yes we had camera gear but I don’t think that’s going to help us see in the pitch black). Not a problem, lantern rentals are available at Apes’ headquarters for under $6.

  1. Pretty weird. I really like the first photo a lot. Kind of a “light at the end of the tunnel” feeling to it.
