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.

In reading reviews about Northern California's Castle Lake, one word came up in almost every one: "beautiful". I agree wholeheartily with that description, and that's why I titled this photo and the related blog "Beautiful Castle Lake." This small lake is in the Trinity Mountains located in Siskiyou County California. Castle Lake is a tarn (lake) formed by glacial activity some 10,000 years ago during the Pleistocene Era. Today it is a jewel which attracts those who are looking for a restful and peaceful spot. It's a place I love to go to ... and capture some of its beauty in my photography.

This historic hotel was built in 1915 and is on the National Register of Historic Places. We stayed here on our recent trip to Oregon's Crater Lake National Park. The views of Crater Lake from the hotel are spectacular, and the food at the restaurant is delicious. The rooms are small with no TV or phone, and the wifi reception was described by a person at the front desk as "good-luck". The location is beyond compare for being able to get out early and catch the sunrise.
