It’s been somewhat of a solstice tradition the past 20 years or so, to get up early, hike somewhere to watch the sunrise.
Before I moved to the mountains, the solstice hike had 6-20 people attending, followed by breakfast at a local eatery. Now that I’m living in the mountains, the solstice hike has just me and breakfast is usually back at home.
This morning had the bonus of a wave cloud overhead, which made it very colorful. If I wasn’t already familiar with wave clouds and the fire-in-the-sky look, I might have thought the world was ending. 😉
The color faded once the sun was above the air pollution of Denver.
