Day #10 - The city at night

A couple of months ago, we set out to hike to the top of Wasson Peak via the King Canyon trail. It was longer than expected, steeper than expected, colder than expected, and far more incredible than expected. We raced to the top in the waning daylight, and hiked down in twilight, then full dark. This shot is from the end of the King Canyon trail where it branches into the final ascent to the peak. A full moon was up, shielded by fuzzy clouds, and the city lights were sparkling in the remaining daylight. It was absolutely gorgeous.
