Yale Reservoir sunset

20140831-DSC_8071Sunset over Yale Reservoir from Cougar Campground in southwest Washington. My forthcoming book Day Hiking Mount St. Helens will feature a great new hike from this campground to nearby Beaver Bay Campground.

Gold Hill sunset – 2

20140820-DSC_7645Dusk over Lake Pend Oreille and the Pend Oreille River from Gold Hill on a recent evening. A surprisingly serene view considering the drama going on elsewhere in the sky.

Gold Hill sunset

20140820-DSC_7635-EditOn a recent evening I hiked the Gold Hill trail out of Sandpoint to check out the sunset over Lake Pend Oreille–and what an evening it was! When I took this shot, it was raining on me, there was beginning to be a bright glow on the horizon, and there was heavy lightning to the north. Definitely worth the (very wet) 5-mile hike!
