Deer Mountain Sunrise

As part of Mike's quest to photograph early morning light, we left the house at 3:30AM one August day to catch a sunrise at the spot we were married 6 years ago.

My first hike in the dark, I think our 1 hr 45 min ascent was also a record time for me.

Deer Mountain will always be a special spot for us, and it was fun be up there in the beauty of morning's first light.
