Sunrise 7/11/09

It's 5:24 AM and I'm on a yellow school bus being shuttled from a pumpkin patch near Smith Rock Park to the start line for the Smith Rock Summer Sunrise Classic. The rock formations for which this park is famous are outlined against the rising sun.


And I am on my way to my first solo 10k walk. A year ago I would not have been able to picture myself doing this.


And I forgot my camera, but that's okay. This scene, the rocks, the sun, the surrounding still snow capped mountains, the 500 or so people - all of it, is in my mind where I can revisit the experience of being here and remember.
