When I travel, I love to get up before dawn and go to a beautiful place to be with the sunrise.  From my explorations the day before, I thought this place on the edge of the lake at South Tahoe would be just fine.  After a month of no snow, it snowed like crazy the day before, then cleared off.  This morning broke mostly clear, crisp and COLD with a few thick bands of storm clouds hovering over the mountains, just perfect for sunrise reflections.  I’m not sure how the geese do it,  sleeping right on the frozen part of the lake.  I’d already been there for some time, waiting in the quiet solitude so I didn’t seem to disturb them.  We never spoke but I enjoyed their presence.  There’s such a sense of peace in the cold dawn in the mountains in winter.
