Damn! It was probably one of the most intense sunsets I have witnessed here in Boulder. Lasted maybe for 3-4 minutes, but damn, those were some spectacular few minutes. Worth every step getting up to the Mount Sanitas, enjoying those fantastic views, fresh air – it was not bad tonight, and good drink, fantastic hike 😎.
Yesterday sunset was a bit apocalyptic. At first it looked pretty clear but as soon as sun went behind the Indian Peaks, it illuminated all the smoke in the clouds. On the front photo you might be able to spot a little spark. Airplane or alians? Leave it to your wild imagination 😃
And to the east it’s almost full moon, breaking up through all that smog.
Looks like it’s a season of sunburst sunsets at the Sanitas. Right now the angle of the sun at the time of my ascent is definitely different in relation to the pine trees than during June, July and early August. Lets see how it will change over next three months.
