To gaze upon a sunrise is a treasured moment, you only get so many opportunities to see them. Keeping that in mind it always pays to get up early.
John Muir also had an eloquent quote, “God never made an ugly landscape. All that the sun shines on is beautiful, so long as it is wild.” I couldn’t agree more, but it’s easy to see how he came to that conclusion witnessing so many sunrises in Yosemite. Personally there are few things as glorious as seeing sunrise over Half Dome.
