A sunset without clouds

Mt St Helens is an impressive mountain. This was last week, on my first visit to Windy Ridge. Windy Ridge is to the Northeast of the mountain. Usually we visit from the Johnson Observatory which has a more direct view into the caldera.

I think this view is very impressive. Unfortunately I was hoping for a dramatic sunset. Without clouds, a sunset is… Well without clouds, the sun just sets. The moment is just that, a moment.

Oh well, there will be others.
