14th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Sundog while climbing Rimrock

I was on an Appalachian Mountain Club excursion which was the Mt. Cardigan Lodge Weekend. I chose to hike Orange Mtn., Mt. Gilman, & Rimrock that Saturday with my fellow AMC hikers. When we reached the peak of Rimrock I looked up and noticed this phenomenon in the sky. No one else noticed it but me. I felt it was a sign from our Creator since I am Native American. I had been grieving the loss of my marriage for 7 long years and I felt it was a significant sign for change and new beginnings for me.
