Finding it harder and harder to stay inside, I strapped on my camera for the fifth time and began marching toward the Clifftops. It was a short hike but the ice laden corridor made for a pre unique walk. A few hop-scotch moves later, and I was topping out on the ridge. Wind slapped me in the face as I walked out onto the rocky exposure. Oddly surprised, this seemed to happen every time I made my way to the Clifftops; yet, I always seem to forgive and forget.
The sun kissed the horizon, making a splash of color in the sky. I soaked in the scene with everything that I had. How could so much warmth envelop such a cold unforgiving landscape? The wintering mountains seemed to celebrate the gesture by taking on pastel hues of orange, pink and purple. Dumbfounded, I just stood and followed suit - soaking in as much warmth as I could.
