Milky Way Over Crater Lake

This was a special night up here at Crater Lake. There was little wind and a rare warm front had come in earlier in the day lending to very mild night temps. Occasionally a crow would fly overhead calling out to me as he floated by. I spent the entire night, awake on this crest taking pictures and enjoying the starry view all the way till sunrise. It is an honor to have had the opportunity to experience this unique beauty firsthand.
