The stunning Sun-Dial peak looming above Lake Blanche in the Wasatch back-country. I was pummeled by a furious summer lightning storm a matter of minutes after this was taken. To learn more check out this older pic:
This was taken a few years ago on the summer solstice. It seemed nature was celebrating her longest day of the year in her own fashion as the sky exploded with color. I can only wonder if the sailors aboard the boat were as impressed with the showing as I was.
Found this in some old images I was perusing through and thought it should be shared.
To have a world that's show the essence of beauty every day is to be rich. To what lengths are we willing to sacrifice ourselves for the natural freedom that once were? Take a good look because once you blink it might all be lost, forever.
I wish for my children, and for your children, that awareness is set and open minds are born. To leave a legacy is not hard. To leave a future, that's where the real challenge starts.
Help me help the future.

I climb these hills as if walking on air body too light to fall bamboo staff resting against a great stone torn cloak snapping in the wind a lone bird soars the azure depths far distant springs reflected in its eye carefree, singing a timeless song gone - on a journey without end. --Shih-Shu, 18th century CE
