Sunset comes late here in this part of the world--this was taken about 9:20PM. It had been raining hard and suddenly the sun popped out so I figured I'd better try one last time to get some pictures of a sunset since every evening this week it clouded up and rained near the time the sun was due to set.
Between the facts that I was walking Patches and the mosquitoes were biting the palms of my hands as I was trying to take photographs, I was pleased that any of them turned out at all. The mosquitoes really were bad here; it must have something to do with the herd of cattle and retention ponds nearby.
Hoards of mosquitoes meant the only ones out where those of us walking our pets--most folks stayed inside and missed the sunset.
They missed some pretty skies.
Time for a late night snack. It was not my intent to share.
We're moving on today; we're heading to Hungry Horse, Montana which will be a longish day for us at 300 miles of red line roads. But it should be scenic!
