sunrise over the mountains

One really interesting thing (among many) about the park is that in each 'leg' of the W (the shape of the trail that most hikers hike; each leg of the W is a valley) there can be completely different weather from the leg next to it. While a storm may be brewing in one valley, the sun holds court in the next. Makes for interesting hiking, though the question, "What's the weather like today?" will get you no answer at all.

This was another sunrise, taken in the middle leg of the W. I didn't make it all the way up the valley as it was sleeting yesterday when we arrived (when I planned on going up) and there wasn't time to go all the way up this morning. Too bad, as it's the one place where you can be completely surrounded by mountains on all sides.
