Photographer's Note

At sunset the west-facing faces of the mountains of Pocatello glow. With snow cover, they glow pink, and without snow, purple. It is perhaps the purple glow that gave rise to the phrase, "purple mountain majesty." One may never hear of the phrase, "pink mountain majesty," but that would be appropriate for the winter!
