Mt. St. Helens

On February 1, 11,000 people tried to buy an online permit to hike Mt. St. Helens--three times more than last year--overwhelming the system and forcing a sales shutdown. As of Monday, permits are back on sale with a new online vendor. A percentage of permits will no longer be held back for later purchase this time, so now's the time: Permits for many popular times, including summer weekends and Mother's Day weekend, are still available.
