Sunrise Hues In An Sub-alpline Forest

Getting lost after star gazing, we stayed the night under a tree without any sleeping bag braving cold temperatures. The sunrise next day brought warmth and beautiful colors. At the moment, it seemed as if I am watching an Albert Bierstadt painting in...

Peak Conditions


Peak Conditions
