One of the locations in Northern California I like to go for sunset is Lake Siskiyou, where a great reflection of Mount Shasta is visible on calm evenings. This was not one of those calm times. So I framed the shot having part of the surface of the lake visible to catch the light, but the primary subject would be Mount Shasta. The clouds to the west blocked some of the sun's rays, casting dappled light on Mount Shasta and its foothills. I like the way nature always challenges me to be creative.

Taking the trolley around Crater Lake is one of the activities offered at Crater Lake National Park. Based out of Klamath Falls, Oregon, the Crater Lake Trolley has provided tours around Crater Lake for nearly two decades.

Smoke is one of the general results of the fires; and during our stay in Crater Lake National Park, we observed four fires .... or should I say plumes of smoke within the park. We were told by a park ranger that fires are actively suppressed so they won't get out of hand because they have a lack of firefighters.
