Mount Saint Helens Danger


This video is not currently available. We apologize for any inconvenience.

A precarious glacier in the crater of Mt. Saint Helens is growing at an unprecedented rate, posing potential danger to the valley below. We get an exclusive and rare visit into the crater itself and trek the moonscape of glaciers, boiling rivers and steam vents with a group of adventuresome scientists.

First Broadcast: 2004
Producer: Ed Jahn
