This Evening's Sunset

Just in time for Skywatch Friday, Mother Nature decided to give us a feast for the eyes this evening.
The photo was taken in my yard this evening, and as is always the case unless otherwise noted here, is straight out of the camera. Enjoy lots more Skywatch Friday sunsets!

Thanks to all my followers - I was pleased to reach 100 a few days ago, something I never imagined when I started blogging! Thanks also to those who comment - I read and enjoy all the comments, and it's fun visiting those blogs. To answer a couple of recent questions:

1. I used to ski, but I haven't in several years. I plan to go a couple of times again this winter.

2. There are certainly wild animals where I hike. I have seen bears (mama with her two cubs not more than 30 feet [10 meters] from me), snakes, and assorted other creatures. One time a bear ran across our yard as my son was walking in the front door. But they are generally not dangerous around here - the two main outdoor dangers in Colorado are lightning and hypothermia, even in the summer if you're at very high altitudes. Although there have been a couple of mountain lion attacks nearby in the last few weeks...

  2. Congratulations on the now 102 followers! It is fun when you see the numbers of your followers increase -- I was thrilled when I reached 10 and never, ever even considered getting to where I am now. Well, your blog is very deserving of the attention it is getting and you repay visits, something else that I think is important to others as well. I know that I do appreciate your comments on my blog so very much and look forward to them each day. Enjoy the rest of your week and have a beautiful weekend, Al!

  18. Congrats on your 100+! I am not surprised, though ... I know I enjoy your posts very much and look forward to each one!

    That sunset is one of the things that makes me homesick for Colorado. Sigh.

    You talked about critters - one of the most unusual animals we saw in our front yard in Colorado Springs were a couple of foxes just moseying through.

  26. Al, this sunset is glorious! I also like your Sand Dunes photo in the Header. There was a moose in my side yard the beginning of the week. I've been a bit more alert on my trails! I downhill skied today - it was great. Breck has a bunch of snow! Happy Thanksgiving.
