Evening Sky at Skywatch Friday

The other night our group of Naturalists met for a hike in the Koffler Scientific Reserve in York Region as it was the last meeting till start up again in September.  It was a lovely night but the clouds were promising rain.  I took this shot from a location up on a hill looking out to the  Niagara escarpment in the distance.  The Koffler Reserve is on the Oak Ridges Moraine so lots of hills and dales to cover..   Look for more interesting skies on Skywatch Friday here.
Have a great weekend.  Valerie
