Sun Setting into the Adirondacks

Sun Setting into the Adirondacks
Sun Setting into the Adirondacks before Perseid showers

Darkness is falling in the Adirondacks, and soon ­ with a little luck ­ I will witness the Perseid showers streaking the Champlain Valley dome. My bride shot this image on her mobile from our runabout in the middle of Lake Champlain on August 12, 2013 while waiting for the meteor shower. If you’re in the neighborhood, look up. And watch out for flaming pebbles!
