Arizona sunset ~ 1973

While going through some old slides I came across this one shot in 1973.

More often of late I have been spending the night before a hike at the trail head. That way I can get an early start on the trail (around daylight) but also there is frequently a pretty sunset to be seen from those locations. These were taken a little after 9:30 last night from a trail at the Montana/Idaho border. (As the sunset began to develop I hiked up the trail a ways to get a better setting.)

When the sun was setting that night there was quite a change in colors, from the gold (the first photo in this group was the first shot I took) to the pinks and blues and purples as it progressed. And right in the middle of the whole thing, the sky to the north, under a thunderstorm that had begun to gather, the sky was different yet, as seen in the third photo. I don’t claim to understand all of it, just to admire.

August sunset

This photo was taken in late August from a tall peak as the sun set behind other tall peaks in the distance.

On Tuesday the Forest Service conducted a prescribed burn in an area of the Lolo National Forest about 20 miles to the southwest of here and smoke from the fire drifted across the western sky, adding a smoky band of orange to the sunset.
