A Campfire at the Base of Mt.Hood

2년 전

Campfire22.jpg

What you're viewing isn't the Lonely Mountain from The Hobbit. This is Mt. Hood— one of many stratovolcanoes that reside in the Cascade Volcanic Arc of the Pacific Northwest. I spent a summer camping in the woods surrounding this volcano and it was an experience I won't soon forget. Unfortunately, my actual camera was out of commission when I took this trip due to a dirty sensor with no way to properly clean it. However, I feel my iPhone did a decent job.

Any support would be greatly appreciated! I'm currently looking to reinvest some of my Steemit earnings towards a new camera to take more scenic photos and time-lapses. This summer I'll be taking a cross country road trip that will span 7000 miles (11,265 km) and I want to be able to document it with the best equipment I can afford. It's my hope that the scenes I capture on that trip will fund my adventure, while also bolstering my geological surveys I post on Steemit.


If you enjoyed reading this post, be sure to give me a follow and check out the rest of my blog. Overall, my blog consists of scientific topics dealing with geology, meteorology, geography, food and history. It's also peppered with a bit of photography and journal entries. The goal of this blog isn’t to earn money per se. While that is a nice benefit, I’m more interested in networking, learning, informing and helping the Steemit community grow to new heights. Also, be sure to use the steemstem tag and join @Geopolis if you're a fellow geologist! Thanks for all your support!

looks amazing... what's for dinner?

This is a truly remarkable capture @keephy I love the amazing contrasts of both colour and temperature.........the icy cool, snow capped mountains in the distance and the inviting heat of a raging fire in the foreground. Resteeming and Following and I hope you get that new camera soon.

You had me at The Hobbit reference, even if this isn't the Long Lake (or even Lost Lake - is it Trillium Lake?)

What's your plan for the cross-country trip? Going to hit all the contiguous states? :)

·

Sorry for the late response! It is indeed Lake Trillium. :) My plan for the cross country trip is to take the northern route. I'll be visiting family in Vermont and then heading through Niagara Falls, through the upper Peninsula of Michigan and then directly west to Washington. I'll probably cruise around the Pacific Northwest quite a bit, because there's so much to see. Thank you for the follow! I gave you a follow back :)

Sounds like a good plan! Cross-country trips are great, seeing so many different parts of the country at the same time. You notice the differences and similarities of the people and cultures and nature. :)
