Jockey Cap Mountain Guide Sunset

Behind Quinn's Jockey Cap Country Store in Fryeburg is Jockey Cap Rock. From the Googles:

Jockey Cap Rock is a huge igneous rock dropped in what is now Fryeburg, Maine by the glaciers that carved the White Mountains. The short hike to the top provides wonderful views in all directions.
On top of Jockey Cap is a monument erected to honor Admiral Robert E. Peary who discovered the North Pole. Peary lived in Fryeburg and made drawings of the area from the top of Jockey Cap. The monument can be used to find the names of the surrounding mountains.
In the 1930s Jockey Cap was a ski area with the state's first rope tow. It's a favorite of rock climbers, and has caves to explore at its base.

This was the view from behind the mountain guide during the sunset on Sunday. The Presidential Range, off in the distance, provided a beautiful horizon line in front of the darkening sky full of a clear and colorful dusk.
