Back at the site of the weather station, I liked the pattern of sun and cloud that came together in this image. I took this picture before embarking on a hike to the base of the cliff right at the sun/shade boundary. The day was New Year's Eve 2002. Only thing was, I didn't realize that fact until about 3 a.m. on New Year's Day. How nice to be so far removed from the normal routine that I didn't know what time it was, what day it was, or even what year it was. When I finally did look down at my watch it was something of a jolt and at first I assumed that I had bumped it and reset the date, but then I realized that I just missed the dawn of the new year. I can't say I ever had a better New Year's. An absolutely spectacular place. The next five photos are from that night.
