Hot chili kept me warm as I awaited the final hour of 2017. The clouds had cleared, leaving an inversion below. Above the clouds, we marched to the Cliff Top. Bundled up in negative temperatures, I welcomed the new year…
…fireworks thundered below.
More tired than the day before, I woke before the sunrise. I was excited to see the new year sun. My camera soon went into action – capturing the morning colors. It was going to be a great new year.
