The Larch Mountain or Sherrard Point Hike is a beautiful hike that I have visited before. I have taken many shots here and continue to visit. The trail was closed because of the Eagle Creek Fire, but should be available sometime in the summer hopefully. There are a few ways to get to the viewpoint. Either driving up when the weather gets warm or hike up.

These photos of the Aurora Borealis are amazing and extremely luck to see. Seeing them requires a strong solar flare and solar activity.
How are they seen? Where cam they be tracked?
