The yard has been keeping me very busy, so I went to the archives for this week’s post.
When we’re on vacation I like to sleep in (in truth I like to sleep in any morning, but that’s another story), but sometimes getting up in the early morning hours is worth the effort.
One such time was when we were at Mount Nebo in Arkansas in December, 2008. We got up before sunrise and drove to Sunrise Point to watch the sun come up. Shortly after we got there we were treated to the scene in the picture above. The horizon turned a gorgeous orange-gold with the sun beginning to peep above the mountains on the other side of the valley.
A few minutes later the star-burst and fiery clouds announced the arrival of the sun.
In another few moments the sun cleared the mountain tops and began its climb into the sky. That was definitely worth getting up to see.
