-Where the Sun Shines Through- Greeted with a spectacular view on a cold morning in Moab, Utah. I was up at about 3 AM to drive and hike to this spot so I could beat the crowds. Lucky enough, when I started hiking up there were a couple more cars pulling in to the trail head parking lot. About an hour later, about fifty people gathered around to watch the show. At one point my shoulder acted as a tripod for one man and his phone! It was all worth it though!!!
