A Look Back—Mt. Shasta

Photograph of Mt. Shasta in northern CaliforniaReturning from Washington and Oregon from a photo and camping trip, I saw Mt. Shasta in the distance. This was taken from a highway overpass on Interstate 5 in northern California. I realized that the trip had been about volcanos; I had photographed Mt. Hood, Mount Rainier, Mt. St. Helens, and, now, Mt. Shasta. Very satisfying!

Photograph of Mt. Hood, in Oregon, at sunriseA solo camping trip from California to Oregon and Washington. Camping season was almost over in this area of Oregon. I camped in a campground the last night it was open in October, 2007. It was extremely cold, but the compensation was an early morning view of Mt. Hood.

A Look Back—Dramatic Clouds Over Fremont Peak

Photograph of dramatic clouds over Fremont Peak near Salinas, CaliforniaA winter storm brought dramatic clouds to the area in January of 2007. I found the nearest high point, Manzanita Park, to capture as much of the sky as possible. The highest peak in the distance is Fremont Peak. It was the first place in California where the American flag was raised.

A Look Back—Bodie Abandoned House 2

Photograph of an abandoned house in the snow at the ghost town of Bodie, CaliforniaHot in the summer and freezing in the winter, living in Bodie must have been a challenge. Still, this was a home for a family at one time. Bodie is above the timber line and all wood for construction and heat had to be transported.

Photograph of abandoned houses in the snow at the ghost town of Bodie, CaliforniaMany of the houses in Bodie still have plates on the kitchen tables. It seems as though everyone left at once, though I’m sure that wasn’t the case.
