Idaho Sunset

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Last week my Grandpa Dixon passed away. He was 95 and lived a good life. We went to Idaho over the weekend to celebrate his life and spend time with my family. Saturday night, after the funeral, we walked around the farm and listened to stories about my grandpa. We were blessed with this beautiful sunset.

We will miss you Grandpa.
