Patience and Time

36 hours without sleep. This was my reward - witnessing one of the most magical sunrises ever from the summit of 13,835 ft. Turret Peak - marking the 88th mountain out of Colorado's highest 100 that I have climbed. The sun rose so brightly behind Jagged Mountain and Rio Grand Pyramid that I thought for sure I had fell asleep and began to dream. Discernable rays of light spread out from behind Jagged and lit the clouds a crimson and purple combination, which I can only describe as scintillating.
