At 8,366 feet, Mount St. Helens is the smallest of the Cascade Volcanoes in our collection, but it is one of the most dramatic. The active stratovolcano erupted as recently as 2008, but the infamous 1980 eruption was the last major eruption and cleaved off over 1,300 feet in elevation, leaving the formerly cone shaped Mount St. Helens with a gigantic horseshoe shaped crater.
Since the explosive 1980 eruption, a new glacier has formed in the crater. Recent volcanic activity has caused a new dome to rise within the crater, splitting the glacier into two lobes which can easily be seen on the map.
Normally, geological processes unfold over millennia, but for Mount St. Helens, the story is unfolding over human lifetimes. This map is a portrait of a mountain in flux!
Your map is made to order and will arrive in 1 to 2 weeks.
Are these prints flat or 3D (they are flat!) and answers to other common questions can be found in our FAQ.
The data for our maps is gathered using LiDAR sensors. This lets us resolve terrain detail down to about 2 feet wide, which is 9x better than existing maps.
Our Cascade maps display the terrain, with nothing else getting in the way. You can see lava fields, glaciers, cinder cones, and other geological phenomena normally hidden from view.
From options like aluminum and acrylic to wood-mounted, we've selected the highest quality mediums to make your map pop.
