DISCUSSION

I’ve seen the sun set over Paris, the Swiss Alps, Lake Geneva, the Rockies, the Bluegrass Mountains, the Aleutians, the Alaskan Range, the Grand Tetons and the Shenandoah Valley. This fall I’ll get to see the sunset off the Oregon Coast. So far, the sunset over the White Sands is in my three favorites. But if you’re camping nearby at Oliver Lee State Park, bear in mind that the campground locks their gates at sunset, and it has lots of snakes who really like the cool of the evening.
