My favorite season of the year.
Anywhere in the world.
The first sunrise of Autumn (northern hemisphere) 2014.
Mount Thielsen (aka “the lightning rod of the Cascades”), reflected in the waters of Diamond Lake, Oregon, just a short distance from Crater Lake.
We were hoping for similar skies at sunset over at Crater Lake the night before. It didn’t work out that way, since the clouds were too dense for the sun to stream through and give us the color we wanted. A few glimmers of hope, but nothing worthwhile. Other than the fact that it was still a sunset at Crater Lake. There isn’t a bad one to be had.
Quite a crazy couple of weeks coming up. Having this view to myself was a nice way to get myself ready. I would have loved to have shared it with Goddess in person, but she was snug in her sleeping bag in the tent some 100′ behind me.
