Sunrise in the Desert

I’ve found a safe trail around the park that I have been using to get in my morning walk. I wake early enough to get out and catch the sunrise. The quad runners have not yet begun to burden the trails and the cactus wrens are singing their morning song. The mountain peaks around the horizon take turns being lit by the sun and the plants sparkle in the morning rays. Every morning is a different kind of beauty. I find myself wishing that I could paint – to capture all the color and light, but my camera will have to do.
