Johnston Ridge Observatory – June 20

After completing a 10K hike at Cold Lake/Hummocks we drove on up to the observatory. Of course there was a great overlook we had to stop at on the way by.





This is a National Volcanic Monument not a National Park per se, but our National Park Pass got us in.


We climbed the trail above the observatory for a short distance to get this view.


Looking back down at the observatory.


We were waiting to see the movie so I enjoyed the exhibits.  Saw Smokey and took his picture, but he was against a bright sky and didn’t come out well.


The movie was great.  If you are up that way, stop in and watch it.
