Blustery Beauty

We went up Flattop Mountain on Saturday morning. The weather man was forecasting winds around 10 MPH at 12,000 ft, but when we cleared tree line we encountered far worse conditions.

 

It was still an awesome morning, and despite the bitter cold it's hard to describe or capture the beauty of being above tree line in the winter for sunrise.

 

Erik Page, took a nice video of what we were travelling in just before sunrise. You can see it here.
