The Waimea Adventures

So with the assurance of the handy brochure, we left our room at o'dark hour in order to arrive at Waimea at Sunrise (y'know, for the best photo opportunity ... yup, the Big Dude totally didn't protest the absurdity of the idea, maybe because our biological clocks were still set to California time). So off we went...

Hmmmm ... better visibility???

I don't think so. So much for the sunrise...

But beauty everywhere, nonetheless...

And, of course, the Big Dude is leaping crevasses. Business as usual.

Aah, here comes a patch of sunlight to chase away the clouds.

Your photographs are sweeping me away these past few days! Well, maybe not the chickens, but they were very entertaining. :)

God is an incredible artist.

The patch of sunlight photos are the BEST! Gorgeous scenery though. And I love Big Dude jumping crevices.
