The light begins to fade at the end of a day of paddling.
We were traveling north from the Old Faithful area in Yellowstone National Park when we encountered three bison traffic jams in the space of about 1 mile. The kids thought it was hilarious to watch them walking down the road, holding up traffic. The bison took their time and would occasionally stop to look at a vehicle as if the cars were out of place.
I took this panoramic shot just east of the Appalachian mountains in Albemarle County,Virginia. I happened to be passing by at sunset. Despite the lack of clouds to provide a colorful sky, the valley itself seemed to almost glow in the late evening sun. Like all of the photos on my blog, you can click on the image above to see a larger, more detailed version of it.
