Sunrise at Urraca Camp
.                                               Visions of Sunrise -- by Gil Saenz
Misty dawn, lilac sky,
Weary spirits look up high.
Early morn, brand new day,
Rising sunlight brightens our way.
Misty dawn, lilac sky,
Each day your beauty magnified.
All the world is in its prime,
Each horizon yields a new springtime.
Misty dawn, lilac sky,
Puffy white clouds float on by.
Across the heavens eagles soar,
While far below the oceans roar.
Misty dawn, lilac sky,
All the earth must comply.
Amber light, coming sunshine,
Time to sing praises to the Divine.
The lights in the two sunrise photos (below) are Base Camp and the town of Cimarron.
“Keep close to Nature's heart...
and break clear away, once in
awhile, and climb a mountain or
spend a week in the woods.
Wash your spirit clean.”
— John Muir
