"I told myself I'd get to photograph the sunrise. I slept like a dog and peeked out the tent at dawn to be greeted with a sleepy, gray, overcast sky. I cancelled my original alarm I had set to go off in 20 minutes and fell back asleep only to be woken by the wind a few minutes later.

On my side, and groggy eyed, I happened to spot a millisecond of a color explosion as the rainfly settled from the gust. I yelled "Trickster!!", shot out of my sleeping bag, and squeezed out two photos due to numb fingers.

I finally stopped fighting the wind and with hands in pockets, stood east to see what I was missing. I was right where I needed to be. Sometimes, we just need to stop fighting."
