This had been on my ‘Bucket List‘ (modest be it) for a long time. As some of you know, I am not exactly a morning person. But, I decided to make an effort during my last visit last week.

I set the alarm & got up at 4:50am — the 2nd day in a row since I had made an early start the previous day also. But, I had, by my standards, gone to bed early. Was out of the motel at 5:30.

Was at the base of the Summit road around 6am. I had been told to expect traffic. Not so. There was only 3 cars going up with I. I (& the Jag) know the road well & we made good time. There was quite a few vehicles up at the top. I know the ropes. I parked on the legally ‘road’ (so to speak) right at the end — ready for a quick get away. (As it transpired it was not necessary. Folks lingered around.)

Sunrise, per my Garmin, was set for 7:05am. It was on time.

It was cold. I did a bit of walking to keep warm. Didn’t want to lose my good vantage.

LOTS of boats out. That surprised I.

Well, it was worth it. Definitely an experience. Glad I did it. Will do it again.
