That would be non-apostrophized Mt. St. Helens, I believe, although I'm not entirely sure what can be seen from David's balcony.

"Mount St. Helens was named for British diplomat Alleyne Fitzherbert (1753-1839), whose title was Baron St. Helens. The mountain was named by Commander George Vancouver and the officers of H.M.S.Discovery while they were surveying the northern Pacific coast from 1792 to 1794."
