Mount St. Helens, Washington: Helicopter Ride
This is as close as I ever want to get to an active volcano. This is what the inside of Mount St. Helens looks like from a helicopter hovering around its active side. You can see the snow, there year-round, and the steam from the middle.
This can be an expensive trip -- more than $100 per person, depending on your departure spot -- but it meets the description of a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. Save your money, and hand over your Visa card.
An amazing experience.
