Crunching up the Cliff Tops trail, I listened as the wind slapped the tree tops. Sunset would be a battle. On top of the ridge, I huddled next to the myrtle and continued marching toward the ledges. I walked out onto the Cliff Tops; the light was a vibrant orange, peak golden hour. Sharp gusts of wind threw the powdery snow into my eyes. Ducking deeper into the forest, I found a vantage point to watch the setting sun.
Crouched in the snow, I marveled at the perfect combination of beauty and peril the wilderness never fails to provide.
