I really don't have time for this, but I'll just tack on a few minutes on the other end of this process. Won't be the first time my priorities have been, uhmm, tumbled.
I noticed the sky a little earlier. First, the moon....
It doesn't show up as well as I wish, but there was an orange tint to it, and the sky was very hazy/smokey appearing.
This one, I unfortunately moved, so it is blurry, but the orange color shows more in it.
See the hazy look of the sky?
Then to the Northwest, where I so often get some of the pretty sunset colors .....
Some of what you see here is actually a little bit of cloudiness, but the bulk of it is smoke/ash/haze.
Really, Arizona, you could have just kept it to yourselves!
And now I have to go back to my preparation. I'm packed and the house is in (sorta) order. I'm trying really hard to get to bed at a reasonable time. I don't want to start this fun trip with tired-bags under my eyes!
I won't be back here in Bloggerville till I'm back in NM, so y'all take care and I'll catch up with you soon!!
Hasta la vista, baby!!
