Let There Be Light

I thought it might be time for another check of the sunrise and sunset hours, since before you know it, it will be the summer solstice. Here you go, the sunrise and sunset times for today: Sunrise--4:49 AM PDT; Sunset--11:07 PM PDT.

Two weeks ago, I posted this pic taken at 10:15 PM. Tonight I took this one at 11:15 PM.

So there you go. The scoop on the daylight hours at the end of May in the land of the midnight sun.

There are strange things done in the midnight sun
By the men who moil for gold;
The Arctic trails have their secret tales
That would make your blood run cold;
The Northern Lights have seen queer sights,
But the queerest they ever did see
Was that night on the marge of Lake Lebarge
I cremated Sam McGee.
