Two GAPP students had their first experience traveling through lava tubes that were formed nearly 2000 years ago.

Within the southern flank of Mt. St. Helens, lies ‘Ape Caves’. Ape Caves is an old lava tube that stretches just over two miles in length, making it the longest lava tube in continental America.

A near two-hour drive lined two GAPP students up for an experience of a lifetime.

Climbing rock walls that towered at ten feet, and stretching over loose mounds of rocks, all with the headlamp attached to your head definitely left a mark on these two German exchange students.

GAPP student, Jan-Ole Lück, claimed that there is nothing like Ape Caves in Germany and continued to explain that it was an experience that he will never forget.
