A couple summers ago…

Lassen Volcanic National Park

@LassenNPS

These are called the Painted Dunes and you have to climb Lassen’s Cinder Cone to see them like this. Actually, you have to hope the sun is peeking through the clouds just so to see them like this…

Vulture @ Metal Magic Festival

Vulture

@MetalBlade #Vulture @MetalMagicDK

One of my favorite bands from this year’s Metal Magic Festival. Coordinated outfits you occasionally see from metal bands, but I don’t know if I’ve ever seen matching guitars from a band before.

Waterfall Wednesday

Gluggafoss

Gluggafoss (AKA Merkjárfoss) is probably not normally worth the effort as it isn’t on the ring road, and is a bit of a detour to get to, but I was staying at a nearby guesthouse anyway that night. The upside is that there are few tourists.

Time of year may also play into your decision to visit or not. Most photos on the internet show a more depressing (brown) scene. I think it’s only this green in late July and August.

Genesis 6:66 And Satan sayeth, I do set my bow in the cloud, and it shall be for a token of a covenant between me and Brutal Assault.

If only Dio was still around and on the bill this year…

Metro Narvskaya

На́рвская (Metro station in Saint Petersburg, Russia)

I had a list of things I wanted to see while in Saint Petersburg, Russia earlier this month. The metro stations wasn’t one of them, but with two days of lousy weather in a row, with the first day already spent at an unplanned stop (The Hermitage Museum), I needed to find something not outdoors that wouldn’t have me standing around in another museum. Turns out there is a museum of sorts, that allows sitting much of the time, that’s deep underground in St. Petersburg. The cost was nice too (45 rubles or about US $.70).

The Soviets really did a number on their metro stations in the 1950s. Each is unique and many are rather decadent. I set out for the “two best” in Saint Petersburg. Along the way I jumped out at several unplanned stops that looked amazing or interesting as well. The Narvskaya Station (На́рвская) was one of those not considered to be one of the best, but wow was it fascinating.
