Sunrise, Sunset

Mt. Nebo State Park in Arkansas in one of the favorite places Betsy and I visits.  We go there every year, usually in mid-to-late February or early March.

We have several reasons for going to Mt. Nebo that time of the year.  One reason is that our favorite cabin is usually available.  There are very few people around, so we feel as if we have the mountain top to ourselves.  Finally, that is a great time of the year to view both sunrises and sunsets.   The picture above is the view from Sunrise Point just before the sun poked above the horizon.

We have to get up early to get to Sunrise Point before dawn starts to break, but although it is sometimes hard to leave a nice bed, the view is worth it — even while the world is still sleeping.

We have a perfect view of sunsets from the back of our cabin, as the photo above shows.  This was taken on a perfectly clear day just as the sun slipped below the mountains to the west.

Clear days can give amazing sunsets, but an overcast day has it’s own special beauty.  This picture was taken on an afternoon when we didn’t see much of the sun,  but there was no doubt that the heavens were declaring the glory of God.

Is it any wonder that this is a very special place to us?

    Truly beautiful pictures. As you say the last one looks like Heaven looking down on us. That must be awesome to view in person atop that mountain.

    No wonder indeed! It’s a special place for sure with the sights of sunrise and sunset from the front and back of the cabin. Absolutely fantastic shots and views

    GORGEOUS… I don’t know what I enjoy the most about being in ‘our’ cabin at Mt. Nebo… The sunrises and sunsets are at the top of my list though… Your pictures are fabulous.

    Love,
