PHOTO OF THE DAY, FEBRUARY 22, 2015 #1903 It was a chilly afternoon, walking amongst the lava fields, at the base of Lave Butte, south of Bend. It was hard to take your eyes off the snow capped mountains in the west.
Dave White Photography snagged this shot of Mt. Jefferson a week ago in an area north of Bend, but it looks like that house has been standing a whole lot longer than that. Think the view has changed much?
Not really the sunrise shot I was hoping for due to a couple factors but anytime you get to watch the day begin from above 9,000’ is well worth the journey, especially when you watch it happen over 8 volcanic peaks! Mt. Bachelor in the foreground, then left to right - The Three Sisters, Three Fingered Jack in the distance, followed by Broken Top, which if you look close on the horizon you can see Mt. Jefferson over it’s left shoulder and Mt. Hood over it’s right. Shot on 2/21/2015. Please feel free to share!
