On Wednesday night I made my way up to the Park Butte Lookout for the 5th time this year.
Each trip is different, unique. Skies and clouds, temperature and wind, sun or rain it is always a fantastical place to spend the night.
This trip was no exception, I went with my friend, Sam and her dog River.
The cool October air is comfortable for climbing up with a big back.
Leaving late we arrived at the lookout as the sun set, had dinner and almost immediately after were out capturing images of the Milky Way, blazing above.
I clambered down below the lookout for a new perspective of the lookout and Milky Way.
The yellow lamp I brought created a perfect yellow-golden light inside.
Finally the excitement ended and we hit the sleeping pads, out on the lookout balcony.
The early morning light was wonderful. I popped up quickly and started my circumnavigations of the lookout, searching for the perfect light.
