Forest Ecosystems Daily: Satulah Sunrise

sunrise over Satulah Mountain

Dawn breaks this morning on the summit of Satulah Mountain. From my journal: “Booked up to the summit of Satulah in the light of dawn to witness the coming day and the start of my 5th Forest Ecosystems class. Ancient, lichen-crusted granite beneath me…ruby-throated hummingbirds whirling above, airing petty grievances and territory disputes with furious vocalizations…watching clouds blow across the front of Whiteside Mountain. The small moments are so often the ones most treasured.”
