“Extraordinary Visitation”

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.



  1. Captivating! This IS almost heaven. The soaring mountains and their high altitude glory truly impart a feeling of timeless immortality. I can’t wait to return!

  2. I am so glad to be on your blog I love this one it’s like fire in the sky. Almost makes me want to get up there at that hour of the day lived here so long but never been there at sunrise! Rhonda
