Took an extended weekend and went for a short trip. Large collection of photos inside.

Original plan was to spend 3 nights at a campground, but with rain in the forecast I started to come up with a backup a plan.

For a short while I thought the rain was going to hold.

Hmm. Consulted my gazetteer and took a right at a fork in the road.

Good idea.

The mist pouring off the mountains was beautiful.

After that drive I arrived in a town with a cheap motel. After getting settled in I walked around a bit.

Lighting store makes for a nice background.

Checking the weather I found out I made the right decision. Thunderstorms all night where I was going to camp, but the next day and night was set to be clear skies.

Iā€™d set out early the next morning.
