Rising before dawn, I set out to experience the coming of the dawn to places around our camp. A chance encounter with a traveling coyote led me to the ridge. First light on the granite, fallen trees, & spring blossoms. Then back down to a tiny, formerly unnamed lake and wetlands next to May Lake, where the shooting stars and showy lupines welcomed the warming sunlight.
