Last year I enjoyed my first sunrise hike up Sandstone Peak. The 6th annual sunrise hike was windy and cool. But this year it was warm and wonderful. There were five of us that ventured up the mountain and it was so amazingly clear.
The view into the valley was amazing and out over the ocean, I have never seen it so clear. We could see the close islands as well as the islands further off the coast.
And of course the sunrise was worth the hike. It’s amazing to be awake, warm from the exercise and watch the sun slowly peek over the horizon. The sky was stripped with wonderful clouds and we enjoyed our time at the top of mountain before heading back down.
Although it’s not our first choice to wake up early on a morning we could choose to sleep in, it was definitely worth the sleep sacrifice. It was a great 7th Annual Sunrise Hike.
