Suspended in time

JMT DAY 29 - SUNRISE AT CRABTREE CAMPGROUND

Sunrise at Crabtree Campground

Before the morning arrived, I crawled out of my tent and returned to the stream in the dark. And I set up my camera pointing at one of the hills expected to catch the sunrise glow and waited.

It felt like hours of solitude that no one seemed to disrupt as the earth was waking up. However, it was only a few minutes till the hill started getting painted in orange.

The sound of the water flowing was deafening. As if amplified by the walls of tall pines for some reason. And I didn’t mind.

No one was up yet. And that is the beauty of it all. This prolonged solitude seemed to last for a while. Although in reality, it was only for a few minutes. Everything was suspended in time.

And you know me by now that I wouldn’t trade it for anything else.
