There was still much daylight left, and the prospect of holing up in a basement still did not appeal. On my way back to the Chase’s house, I turned off on several side roads to explore.

I was wondering if Colorado Springs got sunsets, what with the mountains and all. I think they may be less frequent because there are generally fewer clouds. But when the clouds are there … I took this photo from the parking lot of Jimmy John’s where I went for supper.
There was really only one other night of impressive sunsets while I was out there. That was the night I drove to the Denver Airport to pick up Sally. I shot these out the window of the Volvo as I was driving 80 mph on I-25.
Most other nights looked about like this.
