December Sunset

I haven't posted anything for a while, and can't really remember what I've been doing to inhibit posting. This week we went to an evening program at the Falls and I didn't take my camera, which is always a mistake, even if you plan to go immediately into the building.


Saturday was a beautiful afternoon though, so I got a second chance to record the sunset. I love watching the changing colors. The river is very high since it rained several day last week all though the Ohio Valley. The weather service thinks we could set a new record for annual rainfall in 2011. When the sun goes down though, the river turns from muddy brown to silver.


The first part of the renovation at the Interpretive Center is complete, and visible through the window as you drive into the park.


In addition to being beautiful, the glass sculptures all have meaning as well, but I haven't learned all those details yet. Someday....


You can enjoy the sunset directly or indirectly reflected in the large observation windows.

Geese circled overhead, honking as they searched for a quiet spot to spend the night...


...while Lewis and Clark commemorate their beginnings in the Louisville area with a handshake...


...and the city skyline sparkles as night falls. All this and I still made it home by 6:30!
