This morning, the eastern sky was a brilliant orange but I almost didn't go outside to check the wind due to pessimism. The Runner encouraged me to check it, and he was right! The sky was beautiful and the wind was in a temporary lull.
As I got a view of the east, all that I could say was "wow!". What a spectacular sight.
I turned to look to the west, and the alpenglow made the mountains appear to radiate pink.
Then, the sun crested the the eastern hills.
One last photo - and I could hear the whoosh of the wind starting out of the west.
Before landing, I got one more peek of the mountains from very low.
I did have time to record a short clip of video near the middle of the sunrise. It is also at Youtube.
