Shine On

Sunrise at Mesa Arch, Canyonlands National Park, Utah.

Mesa Arch was the last stop of my adventure to the Southwest last year.
Canyonlands and Moab got hit with a fresh storm the night before, yet it was still fairly easy to find the trail in complete darkness of 4 AM.
By the time sun lit up the arch, clouds completely covered La Sal Mountains, 30 plus miles away on the horizon and I was a bit worried that I would not be able to witness the legendary glow... And then for just a few minutes the arch started to illuminate - I felt like I was looking through a magical window into another, even more beautiful world.
