When Tuesday is a holiday, it's a good idea to take Monday off and extend the celebration. That's just what I'm doing, as I am much in need of a four day weekend.
Early Sunday morning I could see the sky starting to color. Lately, beautiful sunrises have been few and far between and, with the pink tinge in the sky, I knew today could hold a golden opportunity.I jumped out of bed, made a quick stop for the camera, and hightailed it out the door. The sky was full of pink clouds and tints of golden fire. After I'd absorbed the morning light and snapped a few pictures, I turned to head back inside. In the moisture of the atmosphere, I spotted a rainbow just as it was trying to form. It was a glorious morning!
Even with this humid start to the day, it ended up being hot and dry.

Breathtaking. Yay for the 4-day weekend!

I may have missed the morning, but we got to enjoy the thunderstorm and sunset last night.

Wonderful photo! Hot and dry is the operative word in the West. More 100 degree days in the Denver area than ever. Stay cool!

Fabulous sky and fabulous photos of it! Can't wait to see how you incorporate these colors into your sky scarf. I had never heard of this particular holiday in Utah, but I'm glad you planned a 4 day weekend to enjoy it. Of course, I'm sure very few people outside of MA have heard of our "evacuation day" and "Bunker Hill" holidays!
