These photographs were taken after a very long evening hike in a downpour of rain. Cold and wet, I was still awe-struck by this breathtaking beauty of Gothic Mountain and Mt. Crested Butte. We photographed until sunset and then had a long hike in the dark with headlamps to guide us through the muddy trail. Upon reflection, I felt so insignificant in the universe at the top of the peak and yet I know that one act of kindness each day is so significant. I am so grateful for this awareness.
