That sunrise never failed us yet.

It’s currently 35 degrees and partly cloudy up top.

I woke well rested. Yesterday’s hike down Alum Cave Trail and up Trillium Gap Trail guaranteed me a quality night of sleep. My pack full of vegetables only added to the guarantee. Looking out the window toward the East, I saw speckled cloud flakes in the sky. I had a feeling that this would be a special sunrise. I hopped out of bed and made for the kitchen.
Standing in the kitchen, I looked over the bag of coffee beans sitting on the shelf. That was the only attention they would receive. My break from caffeine steered me for the tea. Looking outside, I realized that I didn’t have time for either option. I grabbed my tripod and made for the overlook…
The rest was history.
