It’s been over 35 years since its last major eruption, but Mount St. Helens is still churning beneath the surface. You wouldn’t know it from this peaceful Friday Photo, though. Joe Moilanen was flying a Cessna 170 past the northeast side of the snowy peak when this photo was taken.

The View: The northeast side of Mount St. Helens, Washington state.

The Pilot: Joe Moilanen.

The Airplane: 1953 Cessna 170B.

The Mission: Trip to Curlew, Washington, with Teresa and Beau.

The Memory: Mt. St. Helens is still alive even though she looks to be sleeping under a blanket of snow.
