"I only had one night at Crater Lake and was hoping to find the iconic gnarled bristlecone pine tree which overlooks the lake that I've seen in so many photos, but after about an hour of climbing up the ridge looking for it and not finding it, I knew I couldn't go further to find it and then make the trek again with 50+lbs of camera and camping gear.
So I settled for a spot that was still a good distance up the ridge to set up camp for the night. It was cold and windy, so after I got the cameras started on a couple of timelapses, I went back into the tent and slept for several hours until I woke up to a beautiful sunrise over the lake."

Tough to find where the ocean ends and the stars begin at this campspot in Polihale State Park.
Catching the best morning waves near Fort Pierce means securing a beach campspot late the night before.
