We watched the sunset as we walked the trails around Beaver Lake in the long October twilight. The clouds stayed largely the same, but the light and their colour changed minute to minute.

The climate here has always amazed me for its capacity to support life. Even in the fall, when days are getting shorter and colder, and the rain starts to come.
