Sunsets come early this time of year. Today's sunset will be at 4:11 p.m. The thing is, the sky is usually just a dull gray, so at sunset time it just turns a darker dull gray. Blah!
But, on days it's not quite so cloudy the western sky is just brilliant for about a half hour before sunset. Which, as it turns out, is when I am often ready for a walk.
My walking route is about 8 blocks square (although our neighborhood is not divided into square blocks). On the west side of my walking route is a neighborhood aptly named Sunset Ridge.
It's the only part of my route that has an actual walking path winding behind the houses (instead of just a sidewalk along the street).
It's so amazing to me that each sunset can be so different. Click on the "sunset" tag below to see other sunsets that I've shared.
