I don't think I can compete with the bright sunny red skies that others found.

But here is something different. It was clear to the west and the sun was going down. It was still raining pretty hard at our camp site...

Finger Lake,June 2008

like most Trippers i have lots of sunset photos,some more
eye-popping than this,but i thought i would post it because
it was this first time i have see a sunset on Finger Lake.
this year i found that my favorite camp was taken and went
around the island to a camp set in four terraces cut out of
the hillside.for one guy it was ok and i got some nice sunset
photos..
