Twilight at the Rim

We took a family trip down to Crater Lake and saw this beautiful sunset!  Crater Lake is a collapsed volcano that after it exploded, the lake formed inside the rim.  Then the neat island (Wizard Island) started to form in the lake as the volcano cone started to grow again - so cool!
It was a great trip - I brought my bike along and had a great day of cycling around the 35mi Rim Road which circles the rim of the volcano and has great views of the lake along the way. The views were amazing as the winding road bumped up near the rim here and there along the way!  Despite a blowout and a flat, it was still an awesome ride!
The weather was perfect fall temps for sightseeing afterwards and we had this awesome sunset and pink glow in the lake at twilight. 

Lightning Strikes Devils Tower

Spent a night camping here and was treated to a lightning storm!

I’d been to Devils Tower once before but the harsh daylight didn’t make for such great photo so when I planned this trip I knew I had to camp overnight.

Originally, I hoped for a nighttime photo of the Tower with stars in the background, but a storm rolled in. The clouds were dark and moody so I set up on the hill anyway. I was out for a couple hours waiting for a great shot and a break in the rain when the lightning started, so cool (and a little scary!)


twilight in the meadow

It was the second day on our 2,500 mile road trip from Portland to Teton, Yellowstone, and Glacier National Parks.  We arrived in Jackson, Wyoming just before sunset and after grabbing dinner and on our way to Jackson Hole we drove past this meadow where the majestic Tetons were just peaking over these smaller mountains.  You can’t see them but there were some houses up on these hills facing the Tetons, they must have amazing views!
