Smoke, haze, and an orange sun

A bright orange sun thanks to the recent wildfires that we've been having in California. Over 800 wildfires have already burned several hundred acres of land. Due to the air pollution caused by the smoke and haze, a health advisory is in effect.

Down the road and up to the volcano

That's Mt.Thielsen, an extinct volcano in southern Oregon. It's 9182 feet high and close to Crater Lake National Park.

New Balance in the snow

This is a footprint of my New Balance shoe in the snow. You can make out the letters clearly. (Mirror image, of course.) These shoes have about 500 miles on them. This was taken in the snow near Crater Lake in Oregon, on a morning that had just seen some fresh snow a few hours earlier. Crater Lake is the deepest lake in the United States.
