OPB Crew Encounters Danger In the Crater Of Mount St. Helens | Oregon Field Guide

Oregon Public Broadcasting

In 2014, the crew of “Oregon Field Guide” set off to explore a new cave system rumored to exist inside a glacier on Mount St. Helens. The production team captured a fascinating story of discovery, but the shoot did not end as hoped. This behindthescenes look reveals the challenges and circumstances that lead to a dramatic departure from the crater in the midst of a raging storm. Originally broadcast in 2015.

OPB is revisiting decades of stories our reporters and producers captured while working with scientists, photographers, adventurers and explorers on the volcano since its eruption on May 18, 1980.
