Crater Lake National Park, Oregon

I actually forgot my tripod when I left for Crater Lake from Mt. Hood which caused a problem because I was going down there to shoot stars for the first time. I tried my best using steady hands and rocks to brace the camera from movement during the long exposures all the while freezing in the middle of July with under-prepared friends laying under the galaxy.
