Response to sunset on cadillac mountain


One of the best sunsets I ever saw was in late August of 1992. Mount Spurr, a 11,070-foot volcano in the Tordrillo Mountains to the west of where I live, erupted during a westerly wind, spewing ash to over 30,000 feet. The ash cloud blew over my hometown and the particulates in the air caused a hue ranging from purple to pink when the sun was higher in the sky and, when the sun was lower in the sky, reflected the setting sun from below. It was pretty cool.
