Alpenglow

This was the Alpenglow on the mountains to the east this evening. Yes, the east. This is where I watched the sun rise this morning.

I love facing east here. We get beautiful sunrises, and in the evenings we get the soft Alpenglow. No, we don’t get the sunsets, but in the summer we can eat out on our deck without the sun glaring into our eyes, and we don’t get the extreme heat of the summer afternoons. All the folks on the other side of the ridge, who face west, have put blinds on their windows because of the summer afternoon sun.

I love the soft hues of the Alpenglow that turns the snow mauve and lilac and pink and blue; I’ve seen the Alpenglow in summer where the valley looks as though it is on fire.

I never, ever get tired of looking at my view!
