Here Comes the Sun

By Ann Driggers

For the last two months my pre-work dawn patrols have both started and finished in the dark. Just this past week I've had an inkling that I would soon see the sunrise, if it wasn't for the clouds and the snow (yay!). Yesterday the night sky was clear with stars winking and the crescent of the waning Snow Moon sliding downwards through the inky dawn as I climbed. On the summit of Sunlight Mountain I finally saw the first light warming the eastern sky.

 

There is no better way to start the work day than to watch the sunrise from the top of a mountain. Here Leonard's Lookout frames Mount Sopris with the mountains of the Continental Divide to the north east (left):

Welcome back Sun, good to see you again.
