Here's a 10 shot series of the first few glimpses of cinder cone at @lassennps. Visible through the trees on the trail I immediately took notice of the lone tree you see in the first few images and I was fascinated with it. How did this lone tree get there? Why aren't there any other trees near it? The simplicity and empty space intrigues me... Etc. It made it that much more special and enjoyable exploring this unique and otherworldly place. As you swipe through you get a taste of the layers from cinder cone to the painted dudes, fantastic lava beds, and then finally the caribou wilderness in the far background and then the magnitude of how big this ancient volcano really is..truly a fascinating place. enjoyed this hike with some great people and new friends @she.roams@the_rugged_roamer@billydekom@roamingscott
It took 4 hours to drive 19 miles to get to this campsite in the Sierras. 11k elevation high in the mountain range with no one insight and minimal light pollution allowed us to be able to witness the milky way core with the naked eye. Something I absolutely love seeing with my own two eyes. @she.roams@the_rugged_roamer@rhinoadventuregear@ikamper
The redwoods can grow over 300 feet tall and with the lack of rain that California receives,one way they have survived all these years is through the fog that rolls in from the coast where they create their own "rain" to nourish the roots below. Another way is from the clouds themselves, absorbing up the moisture from the clouds. Big, beautiful, and resilient... The redwoods are a sight to see and worth adding to the bucket list. Have you been before?
