Mighty chilly up here at sunrise!

Getting serious about my photography


Interesting high country shrub

We got up at 4:30 am so as to be up in there by sunrise, which was at 5:34 am, and we beat it by about 10 minutes. That gave us time to set up the tripod and get ready for action. It was kind of chilly up there at that time of the day, but we came prepared for that and were fine.

This loop is right up there with some of the most beautiful high country that I've experienced anywhere. Colorado still takes the cake, but not by much. Each day we seem to find another special little area along the Tioga Pass Road that amazes us. The next post will be about one of them.

We plan to return again to this Loop near sunset to see what kind of photos that will produce.

Stay tuned.
