The chilly fall morning nipped at any exposed skin. My friends and i clambered up a steep hill as our gear threatened to drag us down the dusty slope. Huffing and puffing, we made it to a stretch of relatively flat trail. Then we saw the final steep bit… We could have taken a picture of an apple and still gotten an A for this photo project.
At the top, the rising glow of the sun illuminated the early morning fog that was draped over the quiet town of Cupertino. Colors seemed muted and bland compared to the beauty of the sun peeking over the mountains. Here was a moment that would always be remembered, a step back from the rush and chaos of life. A moment of serenity.
