Perseid Meteor Shower 2016

Mount Lassen

Last month, I took a road trip all over Northern California and Southern Oregon in search of dark skies to catch a glimpse of the Perseid Meteor Shower. The peak times were the nights of August 11th and 12th where meteors were predicted to be seen at 150/hour.

The night of August 11th I spent at Lassen Volcanic Park at 8,500 feet. This was the only night I was able to catch a glimpse of the show. At 4am, after the main crowd of photographers went to bed, I was able to see 1 meteor every few seconds.

Day/Night 2 was spend at Mount Shasta. Day 3 at Crater Lake and Crescent City. Day 4 driving home through the Redwoods and Avenue of the Giants.

I spent my days driving, hiking, and exploring and my first two nights shooting. Road trips aren’t for sleeping.

I met so many other crazy photographers that had the same idea. One of my favorite road trips by far.

Here are some of the photos I took:
