As the sun started to rise, the beautiful colors of the dawn sky was on display. Gradually the colors got lighter as the sun rise. The sun was a reddish glow as it emerged over the horizon and turned to an orange sphere and then to a bright yellow sphere. It was nice to enjoy a beautiful scenery. Otro dias en Paraiso. The beautiful scenery kept my mind off the cold weather. The sun warmed up the air as it ascended to the sky. Finished walking at 8:20 AM.
