The Magic Hour

We live approximately twenty miles east of the Continental Divide. The upthrust of the mountains causes turbulence in the atmosphere and creates the wind we so love to complain about. It also creates some very striking cloud patterns, as was in full display tonight at sunset. So now I'm going to shut up, because this is one of those times when I have to just let the pictures speak for themselves.

Oh, just one thing. As you're looking at the pictures, do you see what you don't see? Hint: it's white.

Looking at these again. Okay, is it just me, or does that cloud on the right in the last picture look kind of like a...no, never mind. It's probably me. I grew up with three brothers, and can't be held responsible for the way my mind works. ;)

When we spent the summer in West Virginia we kept passing a sign that said "Continental Divide" and I finally had to look it up in Wikipedia LOL
