Mt. Rainier or Mt. Tahoma?
Mt. Rainier, an active volcano, is the highest peak in the Cascade Range at 14,411 feet.  With the recent discussion around the renaming of Mt. McKinley to its original name Denali, topic or potentially renaming other mountains has come up.  The local Puyallup Tribe refers to Mt. Rainier as Mt. Tahoma.

This photo is from a visit to Mount Rainier National Park in July, 2008.

Jeff, Cal Poly SLO is a very tough university to get into these days, they have a awesome engineering program, and architecture program, they are still known as a agriculture university, we call them Aggies 😜

Burning Man 2012
As I saw posts on social media from people going to Burning Man next week, I realized that I hadn't gotten through all of my photos from the last time I went, in 2012. Between the heat, the dust and the darkness, the conditions can be challenging for photography, but with hundreds of works of art and mutant vehicles, it's a hotbed of creativity and a riot of color.

In spite of a ban on commercial activity within the event, estimates on the economic impact on Northern Nevada alone ranged from $35 - 44M in 2012 (not including participants' preparations at home). Home Depot, Wal-Mart and many other retail establishments get cleaned out this week, selling building and camping supplies and groceries.

Thank you +Jeff Sullivan for your very thoughtful response. I've watched the Black Rock Desert playa change over the years with sadness due to the increased use and I appreciate the efforts Burning Man makes to minimize the damage. I realize the damage could be way worse however increased exposure equals increased much needed support to protect the Black Rock and places like the Black Rock. As in life, there is lots of nuance in the issue and the more we understand and appreciate the nuance, the more we can come together and move forward.

Burning Man
For those of you who couldn't make it to Burning Man this week, these are the sorts of scenes we'll just have to enjoy vicariously as people get back (photos from 2012).  It tends to be a rather stunning assemblage of art and ingenuity.

Bodie Open Until 10 pm Tonight, with Supermoon Rise
Bodie is offering one of its Ghost Stories tour nights tonight, which means that they let other park visitors stay late too.  It's also a "supermoon" full moon today, and in a setting like Bodie with an eastern horizon about 3.5 degrees in elevation it'll rise over the apparent horizon during or right after peak sky color, about 20 minutes after sunset. 

It gets fully dark around 9:04 pm, so you can also have nearly an hour of full moon night photography before the park closes.  As you can imagine, the park can be super crowded on a night like this, so don't expect to have it, or any particular subject, to yourself, but for the novelty of the overall experience or for practice shooting interesting subjects (and people) under full moon lighting, it's nice that the park makes such opportunities available.

For a much longer, much less crowded experience, we have two more nights left in Bodie this year, October 11 and 12, when we'll enjoy dark, moonless skies and 5 hours of fully dark night shooting in Bodie: http://www.jeffsullivanphotography.com/blog/bodie-night-photography-workshops/

Look for the Moon Rise at Sunset Tonight!
It'll clear the horizon around 7:30 pm in Bodie tonight... I'm heading there now!
