2018—Waiting for the Sun
Thursday morning we left at 5AM to drive to the “end of the road” in Canyonlands National Park. That’s the location of Grand View Point vista. While we waited for the sun to peek above the horizon in the direction of the La Sal Mountains, barely visible where the sun is emerging, a few clouds put on a nice display for us with the colors and the drama in the sky changing second by second. As the sun began to peek above the horizon, the clouds, at first dark and threatening, began to lighten with the red reflections on the clouds, making them less foreboding and adding a cheerier greeting to the day.
