I got a Mini Museum! Pieces of meteorites, incredibly old rocks, and a brick from a bar where the Beatles sang. Yes, really. It's so cool I wrote about it in my BA Newsletter. The link is in my IG bio. ift.tt/2nx4ArQ

Went out for a walk and saw these lovely anticrepuscular rays to the southeast at sunset. I think they're shadows cast by Longs Peak and Mount Meeker, the two tallest mountains in Rocky Mountain National Park. They're both about 4300 meters. ift.tt/2MDooES
