Black Friday In The Land Of The Dirt People

I was up early, but did not get any shopping done. 

Do us both a favor and click to enlarge!
 The sun peeks out from below the horizon.

As soon as I stuck my head outside of our RV, I new it was going to be spectacular. I was able to drive out a little ways from camp and set up my camera before the sunrise began in earnest. By far the best sunrise that I have witnessed in a long time. 

This is not the most beautiful area that we visit, but if I take my time and look around, I can usually capture some beautiful moments. It was a great way to spend the week, exploring the desert and being with our friends.

 100 degrees to the right of the top photo, 13 minutes later. A
small rainbow is visible, a result of the sunrise and virga.

I hope your Thanksgiving was as joyous as ours was.
