This morning went walkabout between 6 and 7. Caught the sunrise. It was amazing. There is a thick smoke haze, and as the sun came over the mountaintop, it was the darkest apricot-orange you can imagine, and it looked like molten steel. It didn’t light the sky around it much, so it was a really, really bright circle. It also reflected on the lake in a long straight line. Even looking at it sideways hurt my eyes.
