Most of the orange clouds were directly overhead, so this webcam view from the Denver Museum of Nature & Science only caught an edge. But wow, what a show we had last night.
“‘Tis a privilege to live in Colorado,” where nature has a way of making you feeling really insignificant and yet extremely grateful to be alive.

That quote describes the CO feeling perfectly.
What a sunset – Hollywood couldn’t do better. Sky song on a high note
I should have (and just did) put it in quotes. I looked it up today for the first time. “‘Tis a privilege to live in Colorado” is attributed to Frederick Gilmer Bonfils, who in 1895 bought and renamed what is now the Denver Post. That’s where DP got it.
How funny – I would have sworn there were already quotes around that – guess it’s true you eyes/brain fills in the blanks sometimes. Thanks for adding the background history.
I added the quotes after I saw your comment. They weren’t there originally. So your eyes and brain are just fine.
Would kind of make one feel very insignificant; standing looking up at that.
It tends to remind you who’s really in charge.
I’m going to forget you said that.
