We left Eugene, Oregon Saturday morning on a trip to Olympic National Park, Washington and the surrounding area. Lake Quinault area was our first stop off Highway 101. After visiting the Lake Quinault Lodge, we headed up the South Shore Road.
I had planned on going to Waldo Lake, Oregon for a photo trip this morning for sunrise, but the cloud cover forecast changed and I didn’t think I would get a colorful sunrise. I figured I wouldn’t go, but then I got an Aurora alert.
After leaving Lee Flat at around 4:15 in the morning we drove to the town of Lone Pine and grabbed a mug of coffee. Just a few more miles to the Alabama Hills along the Eastern Sierra Mountains and the sky was showing a faint glow to the east.
