(Report by Jim)
When the atmospheric conditions are just right, you can look out to the West and witness a “Fata Morgana” mirage where the ends of the Manitous appear oddly shaped. This happens in calm weather when a warmer layer of air rests on top a colder layer, causing light to refract and show the same image inverted and erect at the same time. On the way back from dinner at the Riverside Inn (opening night tonight!) We drove down to Fishtown where my Mom noticed the mirage happening. After dropping everone off, I drove back and hiked out on the short breakwall for today’s photos at sunset.
