Sunset Clouds over Lake Michigan 6792

Following a mini-tradition of showing pictures with red*, white, and blue in them to celebrate the Fourth of July, here are a couple of views from the shore of Lake Michigan in Zion, Illinois, on June 5. It was our first evening of five there, and as we ate supper in the restaurant of the Illinois Beach Resort and Conference Center the wind outside picked up and the sky turned increasingly ominous. Below is a mostly upward view in the opposite direction a minute later.

Clouds 6799

* We’ll invoke poetic license by allowing red to shade into orange.
