Fiery Sunset over the Continental Divide
The other day after watching the moon rise over the Madison Range, we continued driving south back towards Highway 20 and West Yellowstone. It had been a very gray afternoon with relatively thick cloud cover. As sunset approached, however, there must have been a break in the clouds to the west. We driving along when Jessica said "Ooooh, the sky is lighting up!" Just moments later the sky was on fire with the reflected light from the sun setting behind the mountains. We looked for the next available spot to pull over and enjoyed this amazing sunset from the side of the highway. The mountains shown include Sawtell Peak, Mt. Jefferson and Nemesis Mountain. The Continental Divide is in between Sawtell Peak in Idaho and Nemesis Mountain in Montana.
