The sunset that almost didn't happen
We almost passed up this sunset in favor of dinner. In fact, we had pulled into the parking lot of the Canyon Visitor Center to see about a hot meal when Wendi saw that particular look on my face, the one where I am staring out the car window at the growing colors and restlessly turning my camera over in my hands. So we did a quick about-face and drove to the nearest spot we could, which was Artist Point, only a couple minutes away. Granted, it is not the most spectacular sunset I have seen in my life, but considering it was the height of summer and hot and there had been nary a cloud in the sky all day, I wasn't going to look askew at this gift for the evening.
