Sprague Lake Sunrise
To Sprague Lake, in the Rocky Mountain National Park. We drive away under bright stars. Rounding the curves, we can see all the way from Orion to the Big Dipper. As the stars fade, and the first pink streaks the sky, we find the perfect place to view the sunrise. On the walkway over a marshy area, a photographer, already set up with his tripod, and shooting away, is somewhat disgruntled at our intrusion, and becomes fodder for a chuckle on the way home. The sunrise is glorious, and even our new acquaintance softens a bit.
