To honor the end of spring and first day of summer, we headed to Currahee to catch the sunrise. I’ve been lucky to catch the sunrise here three times now- each time has been different and wonderful. Our walk started in the dark, under a blanket of crisp stars. Over the hour, we saw the stars fade and arrived at the summit just in time to see day break over the mountains and valleys. So dreamy!
Right as we were leaving home toward Toccoa, we saw an owl in the road. We stayed to see if it was ok and I’ve got to be honest, it was hard to tell. It just stared back at us, unmoving. It made me think of my mom’s medicine wheel cards- Owl, the Night Messenger. This is going to be a strange summer.
