Sunrise at the Continetal Divide, Salida, CO

May 20: I wanted to sleep in on my first morning but had a feeling the light at sunrise would be worth getting up for. Well, I woke up, peered out the window by my bed, rolled over to grab my paint box, and did a tiny, quick painting of mountains and little houses in the early sunshine. I did it on reflex, without getting out of bed. It took 20 or 30 minutes and then I fell back to sleep.
