The morning started out dark but cool, in the 50’s. The Eastern was cloudy but the Western sky was clear. The big round moon was on display. As the morning progresses, the cloud consolidates towards the Eastern horizon. The sky became lighter and the sun’s rays radiated out over the clouds. The sun finally peeked our the clouds and a fiery orange sphere appeared, what a beautiful sight after several days of rain. Then the low fog moved into the camp, looks like some scenes from World War II movies. As the sun rose, it burned off the fog. Stretched at the basketball court in the morning sunshine until 8:30 AM.
