  3. Returning from my town run, down Nacimiento yesterday evening, the stunning beauty spanned the entire skyscape. I paused to watch the Sun descend on the western horizon, transforming thin cirrus clouds into blazing arcs and radiating shafts of light across the mountain silhouettes. Simultaneously, a brilliant full moon gradually rose up the flank of Chalk Peak, casting an aura across the eastern horizon.

  4. I studied botany on the east coast, so some of these plants are new to me. Can someone post a plant identification list? Thanks!
