This section of the Elwha River Road (technically the Olympic Hot Springs Road) is above the washout. The federal government shut down has added to the backlog of clean up and repair … including this section of road.
The peak in the background is not volcanic… just flat topped and duel peaked. It is snow covered, but I couldn’t get the blue tint out to my satisfaction. There was some mist coming up off the ferns on the right shoulder, where the sun was hitting the frost left from the night before… but it didn’t show up well.
This is an HDR (High Dynamic Range) composite of three images taken about a stop on either side of the ‘normal’ exposure setting. Combined in Lightroom Classic CC.
Camera: Nikon D850 Lens: Nikon 24-85mm set at 62mm ISO 400 1/25 sec to 1/160 sec f/22
