Pulling back the front curtain this morning I was looking at a sky filled with fire. The clouds were picking up the early morning light of the sun even though it was still hidden from our view by the Cargo Muchacho Mountains. Deb, On a long and lonesome highway... was also outside taking some wonderful pictures you will find on her blog along with pictures of the day's sunset.

|The sun was coming up behind the clouds this morning|
and it was time to go inside and get ready for the day ahead.

|At one of our stops we all sat down and Doug had gone|
missing. Tom found him just across the way getting his
|Home in time for Happy Hour as we sat and chatted about|
our day I took this picture of the sky lighting up as the
sun was making its way down below the horizon.
Today was definitely a day to file in our memory book. What started out as a day to explore the Arizona Market Place found us making an unexpected "detour" for lunch in Los Algodones. I have always said some of the best times we have had have been on the "detours" today was one of those days.

For the second day in a row I opened the front curtains to color on the top of the mountains.
|Standing outside the color kept building where the sun |
|Plus, there was a rosy pink glow in the other directions.|
|A lovely pink early morning sky courtesy of the sun|
and clouds over our neighborhood.
|Then I spotted the moon setting out towards the west.|
|Then turning back towards the East the sun peeked |
over the mountains.
|As we were sitting and chatting this evening|
Deb mentioned how pretty the mountains
looked. I agreed and snapped the above picture.
|I went inside for a couple of minutes after everyone left and|
missed the sunset. This is where it went down.
|Coming back inside I glanced out our front window and saw |
a sliver of the Moon slowly coming over the mountains.
By the time I changed my lens and stepped back out it was
almost over the mountains.
|Some of tonight's afterglow looking towards the South.|
|Looking back at the Moon making its way up over |
the Cargo Muchacho Mountains.
Another day lived and enjoyed. We feel blessed to be doing so near friends. Life is good.
