Early morning light illuminating the massive granite wall of Mt Hooker. Wind River Range, Wyoming, August 2010. The wall is only illuminated like this for a few moments after sunrise and only during the middle of summer when the sun rays shine between the mountains to the east.

I captured this image during a 5 day backpacking trip in the Winds in 2010. This place is a true paradise for backpackers.

Thanks for taking a look and for any comments you have.
