Alpenglow on the tip of Cerro Castelan

I happened to be passing by as the sun set and got this view of Cerro Castellan. The peak is called "Castolon" in English, apparently because Anglos can't spell. It gives its name to the Castolon region of Big Bend National Park.

January 2010.

it looks like the mountain has an orange hat on.
Timing is everything, great catch.

Re: Wow...

Thanks, it certainly begged for a photo. I scrambled to get alpenglow shots that evening.

Re: Whatcha mean

Is our children learning?

That one puzzled me, Lairee. The local ranchers were Anglos but invariably bilingual because they relied on Mexicans for ranch hands. Certainly they knew what a Castelan was.
