Above the Waterline

A sunrise trail run today took us over 1,100 feet up. That was handy, because most of the way was literally in a cloud. Refreshing moisture bejeweled hair, plants and spiderwebs.


We broke out shortly before the summit, and were suddenly in a different world.


The sunlight cresting the mountaintop shined through water droplets in the top layer, finally settling on the denser cloud below to reveal a circular rainbow over the mountain’s shadow.


I thought my hiking days were over for the summer season, but thanks to foggy mornings, friends willing to join me on early runs, and an impulsive registration in a trail 1/2 in August, runs in the mountains will continue for a while yet. 😬
