I co-parent Skyboy, a Jack Russell Terrier and Chihuahua mix and curious forest explorer. This film documents his trip to Mount St. Helens, the volcano in Washington State erupted in 1980. Volcanic debris in the “blast zone” obliterated everything in its path, leaving behind an exposed swath of the mountain. Eerie soundtrack by John Frentress and Niilo Smeds.
