Sunset in Deep Canyon~SkyWatch Friday~072012


 We had dinner last night with some friends who live at the end of Deep Canyon, in Pinyon.  They invited us up and it was so enjoyable to get out of the desert heat for an evening!  I looked up and saw the Milky Way.  This morning I awoke at 4:00 a.m. and saw Jupiter and Venus on the eastern horizon.  But, I certainly enjoy last night's show of colors.  I took a walk and found this dead pinyon silhouetted against the sunset.  SkyWatch Friday for July 20, 2012.  To visit SWF, please go to:   http://skyley.blogspot.com/
