Just as I was packing up my camera and tripod the real sunset appeared. I had taken several shots of a modest sunset and figured that was all I was going to get on a rather overcast evening.
But then at 5:06 p.m. the sun finally broke through and really hit the clouds over Teller Lake. I quickly set up again.
I hadn’t hiked the Teller Lake Trail for several years. But it was one of Catherine’s favorites, and we hiked it together several times in 2004 and 2005.
This evening’s hike was cool. But it was quite pleasant because the wind was absolutely still.
With daylight saving time no longer in effect, these fall nights come awfully early. After taking this picture I had to hike back to my SUV for almost an hour in the dark. I got there at exactly 6 p.m.
Hiking after sunset is something I haven’t done for a long time. It was fun.
