Easter Sunrise on Mt San Jacinto Throwback

Happy Easter and Passover to you all!

Many of us aren’t feeling happy or want to celebrate the holidays. At least not this way in isolation. I hope you are taking care of yourselves, your hearts, your minds. This is the way to get through this.

My plan for Easter Sunday was to join the Easter Sunrise Service on Mt San Jacinto and then watch the sunrise from the mountain. Well, I am in sheltering place at home. The Palm Springs Tramway is closed. This plan was ahattered.

I did go last year. So I decided to go back and leave through my pictures and relive last year’s sunrise on Mt San Jacinto.

I love the different layers of clouds, dust and air.

I hope you enjoy these views as much as I did last year and still do!

The below quote resonates with me currently. Take care of yourselves and each other!

“My life isn’t good or bad. It’s an incredible series of emotional and mental extremes, with beautiful thunderstorms and stunning sunrises.” ~Jaeda DeWalt
