A Lovely Morning

By , January 17, 2019

I know a lot of posts have been about scenery lately, but we live in a beautiful place. Can’t argue that.

On a recent morning, although we expected and got a rather cloudy, lackluster day, we witnessed a rather spectacular sunrise.

We put aside morning tasks and went out to watch, and take photos as well as we could.

This last ray shot up from behind the mountain for about a minute, then the clouds moved in, and it disappeared (Photo: Mark A. Zeiger).

Sadly, the photos don’t capture the intensity of light we actually saw. There’s no real substitute for being here.

Taking a Moment to Look Around

Tonight is Twelfth Night, the end of our Christmas season. Time to pack away the decorations, lights, music, and movies.

In the meantime, Nature’s putting on its own light show, as our weather transitions from cloudy to clear and cold.

Another unknown, possibly unnamed peak in our view. This one probably does have a name, likely a border marker between Alaska and Canada (Photo: Mark A. Zeiger)
