Just a note to wish you Happy New Year to you and yours!
And get well wishes too....miserable ain't it? At least you know I
wasn't being a wuse about the sick on the trail thing. Does make
Gail an even greater wonder.
I don't do the New Year's Eve thing...too many drunks out and about.
I hung around hoping for business until about 3:30 or so when I noticed
the sky was clearing and the sun was out.. Jumped in the car, trying to
race the sun to a great view. Drove like a maniac and then that slow
climb...even slower cause I'm still weak in the legs from being sick.
At some point, I realized I wasn't going to make it. Boy was I
disgusted. The first hint of sun in a week ....the first real sunset in
a month and I couldn't move my bod fast enough to see it. I just
flopped over on my back panting...and what did I see!
The backspash...the _eastern_sky was fantastic!! The whole palette was
there...from gray-green thru fushia to purple on the blue-blue sky with
just enough clouds streaks to really show the colors..A definite '8'
and I have yet to see a '10'
Before it was over, I realized the clouds had moved in from the west,
so if I had continued up to the ridge, I wouldn't have seen the sunset
anyway and I _would_have missed the fabulous backspash.
Funny how stuff works out sometimes.............Kahley
