I’m on a quick ‘up north’ trip with a friend. We wanted to make a specific destination in time for sunset, figuring the lowering sun would enhance what remaining color was hanging on the trees.
It was sunny when I left home, but as I headed north more and more clouds accumulated. I wasn’t worried, I figured the sunset would be more interesting with clouds.
But as I pulled within four miles of our destination the sky turned a blank grey and it began to rain. Fog floated up between the trees.
I figured trekking through a wet field to the top of a hill in the rain to see the nonexistent sunset was going to be a waste of time. But I’ve learned to never give up, especially when you’re so close. So we trekked.
And as we began to top the hill I knew we were right to make the trip; I could see color out there in the fog.
And when we got to the top?
It’s supposed to be sunny here tomorrow and we’ll have a few hours to explore before we head home.
Can’t wait to see what we find.
