It is fabulous, I am choked up. I live in California and I have seen beautiful sunsets here of course, but something about seeing them and listening to the traffic at the same time takes the beauty away.

Hi there in Cali.
Regarding your question about weather... each person has their own tolerance of heat and cold, deep winter snow and short days of sunlight in winter. The sky in my part of Montana is usually clear blue, no matter what time of year, but we do get deep snow in winter. You learn to pay for the home heating bills and wear warm clothes if you are moving here from a hot location. I was born and raised in Montana, have enjoyed traveling many places away from here, but I wouldn't live anywhere else.

Always clear blue skies, but we pay for it with cold, windy and in some parts lots of snow

Default Great Falls sunset

I'm back with more sunsets, but from Great Falls this time. I spent a fine week visiting with a lifelong friend first at my house, then up in GF after giving her a ride home (she is 77 and doesn't drive on the highway any more).

Her home is above the Missouri and faces Gore Hill, so the sunsets from the wall of windows and the balcony are awesome. Her family owned a lot of property in GF, including the Dempsey Inn, and the location of this property was once a bare hill where her grandfather told Charlie Russell to go ahead and paint there any time he wanted... which he did.

Still the poor quality camera, but I hope you overlook that and just see the technicolor sky.

H.I.

You can see the sunset reflected in the Missouri River.

Ooooh, and people still wonder why I like Great Falls... those sunsets say it all. Great story too!

Have you ever seen the "pink air" phenomenon there? Never seen it anywhere else. Seems to be due to suspended fine dust blowing off Gore Hill (maybe with an inversion layer over the town?) on an otherwise-clear day. It really looks like the air is pink all around you, not just a pink sky overhead.
