Burlington's Famous Sunsets

Boot Key Harbor, Marathon, Florida

I've been writing a lot about the famous and spectacular sunsets here in the keys.  I thought I would contrast those with the famous and spectacular sunsets in Burlington, Vermont (Our summer hang out.)

You see, the best view of New York's Adirondack Mountains just happens to be seen from Vermont.  The sun sets behind those mountains.  In fact from the Burlington vantage point, the sun seems to drop right into downtown Toronto.

Of course, as the seasons progress, which Adirondack mountain the sun sets behind varies.  That is part of the nuanced sunset viewing from Vermont.

Once I had the privilege of flying in a glider above Vermont's Mount Mansfield.  Looking west, I could see Burlington, then Lake Champlain, then The Adirondack Mountains, then Lake Ontario, then Toronto, Canada -- all in a line.  It was spectacular.
