Sunrise at Del Dios Highlands

Last week I gathered with a small group of friends. We met at 5 am. The plan was to hike the 3+ miles to the overlook to be there before sunrise to catch the pre-sunrise light. Unfortunately, we got off to a rough start. After hiking up hill for about 10-15 minutes, I realized I forgot my camera in the car. The others were kind enough to encourage me to go back while they waited. Twenty minutes later I was back with camera. An hour and 15 minutes later we were on the summit. I quickly set up my tripod and took the first photo you see below.
