Pics from 8th Annual Mt. St. Helens Cruise

Scion xB from Mt St Helens cruise

The 8th Annual Mt. St. Helens Cruise was held on Saturday, June 14, and it was our biggest event yet. We had a little bit of everything this year—From Acura to Volkswagen and just about every make in between. There were hatchbacks, and coupes; sedans and wagons. We had lifted vehicles; we had lowered vehicles. We counted around 115 vehicles, and more than double that for people. Scion helped sponsor the event kicking in a healthy dose of food and swag, which was much appreciated.

The weather was great in Castle Rock, where we had our picnic at Seaquest State Park. However, there was plenty of fog on the way up and some showers—so glad we all washed our cars. And unfortunately, it was cold and foggy at Johnston Ridge Observatory, so the amazing mountain was out of view.

Back down at the park, we had a great picnic with lots of food and plenty of swag, thanks to Scion. We had lots of help from people on the cruise when it came to cooking, cleaning up, and making sure everything went smoothly. I'm always impressed at how people step up to make this happen year after year, even when it starts to get big. Everyone was respectful, friendly, and pretty darn awesome—one reason this event is so much fun and so successful. We're already looking forward to next year. If you're in the Pacific Northwest, plan on attending next year. It's usually held the first (or second) weekend in June. Mark your calendars.
