Castle Crags Wilderness

Of Fire and Ice

Mike Shoys

After driving a few hours to get to the trailhead as the sun was setting, I ran/speed-walked a mile to get to the lake just as the light was getting good on my first and only visit to this location. After scrambling up a nearly-vertical cliff and quickly setting up my camera and tripod, the sky lit up and I got to experience and capture one of the most memorable sunsets I've had the pleasure of witnessing, before sleeping near the lake that night.
