This photo taken on my iPhone tonight from our front yard returning home from Sacto.  good timing, huh? FYI, our house is to the right of photo so you don't see.  house on left and fence is our only neighbor.  Direction is looking Southeast from where I stand when taking photo. Distant horizon a ridge beyond which is famous Emigrant Gap up in high Sierra. (remember the Donner party?)
