The sun is on it’s southern most track. For us that means we can catch a sunset over Guyles Lake.
But you have to hurry because this time of year the sun set comes on really fast.
Chance and I were hurrying along, trying not to miss the sunset. He knows the roads and keeps a look out for deer or turkeys…we saw neither.
Sometimes it is all about the chance for Chance. The chance to go for a ride, when some days he has to be content with staying at home in the yard…so anything beyond that is exciting.
We just barely caught the sunset. Those trees that circle the front of Guyles Lake are Tamaracks and even if they look like dead sticks all winter in the spring they will turn all lush and green.
Once again we are thrust into the darkest part of the year. Today our sunrise is a 8:05 AM and sets at 4:36 PM for 8 hours and 31 minutes of sunlight or 15 hours and 29 minutes of darkness. The Winter Solstice officially happens for us at 10:49 PM. I always look forward to the return of the light little by little minute by minute.
It is good to finally be officially in winter. It is probably my least favorite time of year, I am ready to get it over with already.
