Following a fun day with my niece and her family in Sunriver and Bend and an early dinner at the Bend Brewery I got some sweet goodbye hugs and headed for Sparks Lake aiming to shoot sunset over the South Sister from Ray Atkeson viewpoint. As I drove up the road it did not look promising for an interesting evening but I did walk up to the viewpoint to confirm my initial impression. Nothing much.
Went down to the meadows surrounding the lake and found what I had hoped for.
Looking South: Buildup over Mt. Bachelor
Looking North: South Sister and Broken Top with forming evening clouds.
