(Just Missed the) Sunrise Hike

Going on a sunrise hike to realize a third of the way up that the hike is way longer and harder than expected is not the best way to start a day. But the views at the top of Mt. Jo were breathtaking, even without the help of a sunrise’s rays.

Behold.

These pictures in now way do what I saw any justice. The golden light illuminating the softly mounded snow, the crisp, clear air, the expansive view breathtaking in every direction.

Adding “sunrise” to “hike” might simply be an extra motivator for getting off my butt and hiking. Otherwise I never would have been able to revel in this truly amazing view.
