Last light of the day at Smith Rock State Park in Central Oregon. About 1/2 hour down the road, sunset photography was followed by a visit to Crux Fermentation Project (a nice cool vibe craft brewery just off Highway 97 in Bend, Oregon).

In college my buddies and I took a road trip from Los Angeles as far north as Banff and as far south as El Paso, Tx. Sometime in between we camped under the stars along the northern rim of the Grand Canyon. I remember awakening way earlier than normal and walking to the canyon's edge to watch my first sunrise. I didn't own a camera back then; I was simply amazed at the sight that unfolded.
Fast forward, and now with camera in hand, I was able to attempt to capture the grandeur that happens here every morning. Photos cannot really capture the vastness of the Grand Canyon. The visiting season along the North Rim is a short one, so if you have the chance, catch a sunrise here to experience amazement.
