Gorgeous morning mountains


Guests were busy snapping pictures while I was making breakfast. When I looked outside, I could see why they liked this shot. The way the winds were blowing the clouds as the sun came south was gorgeous (it makes a big circle like a flat clock or dinner plate overhead). The sun doesn't so much rise in the summer as make a circle above our heads. In the middle of the night, it's to the far north, then does a little twirl overhead into the night hours when it returns to the north. It will start to sink below the horizon in late July. Next week is the summer solstice and gives true meaning to our Midnight Sun.
