The Long Kiss Goodnight
Sunset in Denali National Park and Preserve from Reflection Pond at Wonder Lake. Denali blushes a majestic alpenglow pink as setting sun kisses her goodnight. The good fortune of being in this moment at this time is owed to a couple of strangers who enabled us to get there just in time. There has never been a more magical or spectacular moment in nature in which I've had the pleasure to see with my own eyes. There may never be.

The September frost that coats the Denali Tundra also helps to start the process leading to these beautiful Fall colors

Summer Solstice Sunrise
Our Soltice Sunset was actually this morning at 12:50AM and the true Solstice Sunset will actually be tomorrow morning at 12:53. Our sunrise happened just 2 hours later at 2:58AM to begin the longest day of the year.
We're glad to have our summer sun and very reluctant to begin give back the timeshare to the Southern Hemisphere. Thank goodness it's a long transition.
