Sunset Sunday

We've had some gorgeous sunsets lately. Yesterday evening, we hiked up to Hug Hill to view the clouds catching on fire. This is the classic view of the Divide from Hug Hill. There's just one tree between us and the mountains.
This is looking a little more to the north.
And finally, just as the brightness started to fade, I looked even more to the north, where the fiery sky was most intense. Whenever I see sunsets like these, I am reminded of the John Denver lyric "I've seen it raining fire from the sky...".
One night earlier this week, the colors were less fiery but still gorgeous. The jagged edge of Continental Divide is on the horizon.
One of the only things I like about the rapidly diminishing daylight is that sunrise and sunset happen at more convenient times so we see them more often! I hope that you're having a peaceful Sunday.
