The sun rose over Langerman Reservoir this morning. The event occurred at 7:28 a.m. Mountain Daylight Time.
Suddenly a huge ball of fire appeared low in the eastern sky. The world awoke. In an instant night changed into day.
First, the sky turned to gold. Then, as the light struck the water it too transformed itself.
I saw the drama with my own eyes. I experienced it so I know that it happened, and I have this proof:
The sky was black when I left my apartment this morning. I drove 14 miles due north to the reservoir so that I could be there when the sun rose this morning.
Then, when I was positive that it did, I got down to business. My business this morning was to hike the easy 1.6 mile loop around the reservoir.
We are not usually so fortunate.
