A cold and gloomy summer evening is briefly interrupted by an intense ribbon of red sunset light. This evening was another lesson in never leaving too soon. I made the hike up to Mayflower Gulch as dark storm clouds loomed overhead. I suspected the sun had made its last appearance of the day. Just as I was contemplating packing up my gear and hiking back down, this beautiful red ribbon of light appeared across the mountain range. It only lasted a matter of minutes, but was the most unique light shows I've witnessed.
