    1. John-- We always feel a little sad when we close the gate and head for the car. We are planning on spending most of the month of January there and really looking forward to it.

    1. Steve-- My obsession with atmospheric optics has led me down a path to new words like circumzenithal and parry supralaterals. There's so much to learn! Glad you liked the pics.
