It’s nearly the solstice. The sunrises are downriver from my route to work. I stop and look over my shoulder. After a mile of riding, the sun peeks over the horizon and I stop to appreciate it. It may be cold and the trail may be icy, but the sunrise makes the ride to work worthwhile. Less than a minute after taking this picture I spotted a bald eagle in the Belle Haven tree. He was checking out the sunrise too.
