We had pretty much clear skies the entire trip, but on our last night after driving back from some fishing at Convict Lake the sun burst through the smoky haze and produced some pretty cool rays. Color didn't explode but the rays against the dark mountain range looked awesome. I had to pull over and take a few before heading back to the cabin. This was an awesome sky to end the trip.
