Salty Air Scenic Slide Shows

Winter Solstice Sunset At The Knob – Slideshow

Solstice Sunset At The Knob
Written by Brian Tarcy

FALMOUTH – As the shortest day of sunlight of the year ended, we counted 20 people standing on the Knob watching the winter solstice sunset show.

While it is a long, slow trek back to the craziness of Cape Cod summer, it’s clear that even winter is an attraction here. We stayed with the crowd for a minute, to get the photo that they were getting, and then we wandered back to take in the whole Knob.

Some people like crowds and parties this time of year. We like solitude. But everyone loves the Knob at sunset.
