Sunset from Transmountain Road

On a recent evening, as my wife and I relaxed in our pool while seeking relief from the heat that is so typical of El Paso in June, I happened to look skyward and watched with interest as the clouds rolled by. Because cloudless skies are the norm here (other than during the July/August monsoon season), I thought to myself that this might be turning into a good set-up for a colorful sunset since clouds are one of the key ingredients to a colorful sky.
