Photo Date: August 2014
This photo was taken in the early morning around 6:30 am, after we had camped at the camp base by the emergency shelter, located at the 10.5 km point. This photo was very rewarding as this was the first sunrise I have ever seen; and it made the whole hike worthwhile. It was a chilly morning and as a result we had to throw many layers and jackets on. These types of photos remind myself the payoff of hiking and why I would do it all over again. Taken with my Canon Rebel XS.
