A few minutes later, the sunset itself looked like a forest fire on top of the ridge.
Another evening, I hiked to Horseshoe Bend and joined about 100 others waiting for sunset. When it came, it was a small patch of light below huge clouds.
However, when I zoomed in, the sunset looked more impressive.
On the way back to camp, I swung by the Navajo Generating Station, a coal fired plant that supplies energy to three states. At one time, it was a major pollution source, but I am pleased to say they have installed state of the art scrubbers to greatly reduce sulfur dioxide and nitrogen dioxide emissions. Further reductions are planned.
I enjoy driving around the area in search of unusual rock formations. I took a road I had never taken and found a nice collection of large formations with lots of green sandstone, which I find particularly attractive.
