Scary Photo Adventure At The Old Abandoned Train Tunnels

Join me on my latest photo adventure where I have to walk through scary old abandoned train tunnels in order to get to a beautiful sunset scene above Donner Lake in Truckee, California.
A few days ago, the day after Halloween, I felt like scaring myself so I headed to one of the creepiest places in the area. The old abandoned train tunnels always make the hair on the back of my neck stand up, yesterday did not disappoint. I was also not disappointed by the incredible sunset we ended up having. A little bit of smoke in the air enhanced the sunset colors and I ended up with three "keeper" photos that can be seen in the video.

Thank you for watching!
