The weather wasn’t exactly cooperative when we went to Arkansas this year. I think we had more rain, fog and mist than we’ve ever had. But even those conditions made for some interesting pictures, at least as far as I was concerned.
Friday morning Betsy and I got up to see the sunrise. But when we got to Sunrise Point we found clouds in sky and fog in the valley below. As the sun came up we could see a band of light between the clouds and fog, and the bright orange color told us that the sun was indeed rising.
As the sun got higher the light got brighter. The clouds took on a scalloped appearance and the fog in the valley began to break up. In many ways it seemed that we were all alone at the top of the world.
On a more personal note, later today (Monday) I have an appointment with a neurosurgeon. A recent MRI showed signs of ‘chronic fairly severe degenerative disc disease’ and ‘moderate to severe facet arthritis’. I’m the first to confess that I don’t know what this means as far as future gardening and hiking is concerned, but any prayers and good thoughts will be greatly appreciated.
