Are you there? The skies are open, the hills saturated from last night’s pounding rain and you are right behind a bank of clouds that look like a splendid snow capped volcano reaching up to 16,800 feet. I am on the Intag side in the cloud forest, mostly national preserve with trails and streams and a few small farms. This will be my home this week. I’ll await this view each morning. In this direction, the sun will stream across the landscape at 6:15 creating such a strong ray that the horizon is completely lost in the radiance.
