I went for a long motorcycle ride today, taking the KLR out around 36. I told Lori I’d be back before 7pm. As I was starting back there was a layer of high stratus clouds which usually makes for a great sunset, but since I didn’t want to be late and have Lori worrying, I figured I better head back, and maybe get a sunset in Ferndale. By the time I got to Ferndale though, the sky was covered in thick clouds so I wrote off the possibility of an interesting sunset. We were sitting on the futon when Lori noticed the glow in the eastern sky. Thinking that there must be a killer sunset in the west, we went out the front door and were greeted with this scene.
