Sunset from Mount Olympus

One of the best ways to conclude a beautiful weather day is by walking up part of the trail to Mount Olympus to watch the sun set behind the Oquirrh Mountains to the west. I was particularly lucky on this day when a group of people on the trail suggested I look to the sky across the valley to the southwest. I spotted two bright streaking objects headed straight toward us: the space station and the space shuttle. Amazing!
