Wild camp sunrise

by backpackingbongos

As I turned over to go back to sleep I noticed a pinkish tinge filtering under the Trailstar.  The wind had finally dropped and the inside of my shelter was covered in a layer of frost.  Thankfully the forecast low cloud and mist had not materialised.  I slid out of my sleeping bag, still dressed in my down jacket and headed for the door.  The cold silent air bit at my face as I pulled my hat to cover my ears.  I had woken just in time to witness something magical.
