A former student of mine (from my first year of teaching) came to visit in early August. I had not seen her in 34 years. It was quite the reunion and re-connection. She wanted to go hiking in Rocky Mountain National Park. However, I also asked if she would like to experience the adventure of sunrise in the Tundra. She said “yes” and had the experience of a lifetime. It was an extraordinary sunrise at Rock Cut. As she moved closer to the rock formations, I was able to capture her silhouette against the fiery sunrise colors. Yes, the experience became a special gift and visit that she will never forget. I wish this gift for all my former students.
