    Well, brothers, with so much going on in my life right now, I welcomed the chance to just sit back and watch the awesome sunset tonight. We get some pretty cool sunsets here in the mountains, but tonight's had to be in the top ten. It's really humbling to watch Mother Nature at her best, and views like this sure help to keep things in perspective. Here's the pic:

    When I was stationed out in Arizona we would get views like that. Every now and then we get one here in Texass, but nothing as cool as yours.

    Don't have any sunset pics, but I tell you it's awesome.:D

    First one is coming into Moab at sunset. Wish we had time to go on a hike that night.

    Second is a spring in Yellowstone.

    Third is in Wyoming somewhere.

    Fourth is a picture from the Green River overlook. My best friend and I took a road trip at the end of summer last year. One night we climbed out on a ledge and sat there watching the sun go down and the moon come up. We probably staid there until 2 in the morning talking about everything. Some of the best memories of last year are tied to that picture.

    Amazing and beautiful. It looks cold.

    It was 81 here today.

    That's a good thing, taking in a sunset.

    here is one from my front yard about a month ago.

    Looks like the sky is on fire. It was definitly one of the best I have seen in a long time.

    Its cool to see the diffrence between a mountain sunset and a praries sunset.

    I must say, Paul, I envy you!

    I love the mountains, but hardly ever get out that way :( I'd love to live there some day!
