Solstace Celebration
A North Dakota sunset on June 21, 2008. I was on a hill over the Missouri River near a Mandan Indian burial ground. Many came out to see the sunset in the west and the rainbow in the east. My son is in the middle, the greyhounds are Kerry and Twinkie, and I don't know the dancing nymphs...
