This week, we take you to explore Ape Cave just south of Mt. St. Helens. Ape Cave was formed over 2000 years ago when a rare lava flow pulsed through the tunnel for several months creating a deep and wide tube. When the eruption finally came to an end, it left spectacular 13,042 foot long lava tube – the third longest in North America.

This week, we take you to explore the Lava Canyon Suspension Bridge near Cougar, WA. Located 75 miles away from Portland, Lava Canyon and Ape Cave are often hiked together for a family friendly day trip.
