The mountain was completely socked in at dawn. We went back to sleep, ate breakfast. I said, “Even if it is cloudy, I wanted to photograph my favorite aspens in the park.” The clouds started to lift.
For fifteen years we have paddled and photographed at the Oxbow. We have seen some awesome sunrises there. This day was different. Humblingly beautiful. All I could (and can) say is “Thank you.”
