Coyote Mercury

words, birds and whatever else by James Brush

Old Photo Friday

This sunrise was taken from the summit of Mt. Monadnock, New Hampshire during the summer of 1988, just before we moved to Texas.

It was the last thing I did as a Boy Scout and it was probably the coolest. We started hiking to the summit around 3am and arrived just before dawn. All around we could see the tops of other mountains poking out of a sea of clouds.

It’s the best sunrise I’ve ever seen.


  1. Great photo! It’s good motivation to go outside and hike around. It does have a bit of 80’s feel to it too.

  2. As to the ’80s look, I guess it was either than old film or the way the film has gotten old.
