      I get lucky sometimes. This town can have gorgeous sunsets and wild cloud formations. This geographical area sits in an odd position, butting up against a very small mountain range called Thunder Ridge (with Occaneechi Mountain) and, to the East, the Piedmont Plateau drop off. Anyone who has ever driven I-85 knows where the drop off is…because, driving West, you have to climb. I’ve actually witnessed storms parting this area on radar because of the Ridge. We can get some spectacular formations:

      It’s probably why the Native Americans chose this area as a large trading path…that and the Eno River.

      It was, indeed. We get these stunning displays sometimes. I remarked, above, to another commenter with links to more shots I’ve posted in the past.

    Wildfire? or the “normal” beauty?

      No actual fire. We get wild cloud formations, sometimes and really pretty sunsets.
