Watching the Sun Rise

It is an incredible thing, sitting in this trailer in the parking lot south of campus, watching the sun rise over the mountains.

Wednesday through Friday mornings, I wake up at 5AM and get to work at a snack trailer south of campus at 5:30AM. I open the  by 6:30AM. The sky is light, but living on the west side of the Wasatch Mountains, there is still no sun in the sky at that time.

Even though it is summer, it is still chilly in the early mornings. So, I sit on my stool with a jacket, and watch the road in front of me for signs of sun.

Soon, sunlight prevails on the asphalt, chasing shadow closer and closer to me. It only takes a few minutes and I am always antsy with anticipation.

BOOM! Sunlight pervades into the trailer, beaming down right on me. I can escape from the jacket and become revitalized as I am warmed by the rays.

Looking at the Y Mount and the pass between the mountains takes my breath away every single time. The sparkling sun climbing over the peak, the glittery rays poking through the pass, the inviting illumination it gives the Y.
What an incredible sight.
