Prairie Sunset Over Balaton, Mn

Balaton, Mn is a small farming town about 20 miles West of Walnut Grove. Driving through the afternoon in beautiful sunny skies, I hoped I would arrive with enough daylight left to fly. A distant patch of clouds was also beginning to blot out the sun as temperatures dropped to about 10 degrees with a light westerly wind. With only minutes of daylight to spare I arrived and chose Lake Yankton and it’s scattering of fish houses as my runway. By that time the low rays of the sun were beginning to break through the clouds to form a spectacular winter sunset.
