Sunrise at Iron Mountain

It was dark. It was cold. It was early. The tree-lined path to the base of the trail was eerie in the pre-dawn dim, trees rising silently out of the darkness on both sides. No one else was around. And the stars were still out.

My friend D organized a sunrise hike for a group of us up Iron Mountain in San Diego this weekend. I woke up at 4:15. In the morning. Yikes! There were five of us + one adorable yellow lab puppy. With our flashlights, backpacks of water, snacks, and sweatshirts, we trekked our way up the nearly three miles to the top and made it just in time to watch the sun crest over the foothills.

Could not have been more worth it. How beautiful is this? So absolutely gorgeous.
