Paynes Lake is just next to the Pacific Crest Trail in Northern California and this epic view stretches across the Russian Wilderness, past Etna, and onto the north-west face of Mount Shasta. I was totally captivated by this perspective and my father, grandfather, and I spent probably an hour on this photograph. What a special morning, special weekend, and special place on earth. Paynes Lake.
