Last Wednesday evening, we drove up to the Divide for Joseph to take sunset pictures. John had work to do, so he stayed back at the cabin.
It was a beautiful evening, withÂ characteristicallyÂ cool temperatures on the Divide. The drive up from our cabin is picturesque, and that night was no exception. The rugged mountains, the sun casting a gorgeous glow on one section, curvy roads that wound up to the divide–the only thing missing was a bear lumbering through a grassy meadow. That, in fact, we saw on our way home, before we hit Colorado Springs. A huge, lumbering black bear. Back to the Divide. I think that night was the quietest we’ve seen Â there. Another vehicle had followed us up, but after enjoying the scenery, they left, and Â an occasional car would drive by, sometimes stopping long enough to grab a shot of the beautiful sunset before disappearing down the dirt road. Someday we want to explore that side of the mountain, going into the valley.
The van definitely traversed some rough roads. Thankfully, it stayed together and made it home to Kansas.
While Joseph took pictures, we girls did some.
Joseph took the below picture.
We used an external flash with a wireless transmitter (thanks, Christopher!) for these pictures.
So, where are Joseph’s stunning pictures? We shared one earlier, and I’m saving the others for times throughout the year to post, along with a few other scenery shots.

and his glory above the heavens.”
