Not every sunset on Mount Nebo is perfect, in spite of some of the pictures we’ve posted from there.  Fog came rolling in late one afternoon a couple of years ago, and we were afraid  we wouldn’t see anything at all of the setting sun.  The fog was fairly thick, but I got this photo of the setting sun before it completely disappeared.  I like the reflected light on the wet rock near the bottom of the photo.
