A quick hike up the hill to catch a sunrise. I drove my truck all the way to the end of the Jeep road. That was pretty rough. That's one good "gully washer" away from not doing that again.

The clouds looked promising as I was driving to the lake. Not quite the color show I was hoping for, but anytime you can catch a sunrise in the Supes, it's a treat. Not another soul in sight for the sunrise. A couple of young folks came up as the sun was already up. I rarely see anyone up here for the sunrise.

I hiked down to eastern edge of the cliff to get some pictures. I saw a bald eagle flying near the dam inlet, but it was out of site before I could raise up my camera. Lots of people on the lake early.

As I was starting my hike back to the truck, a group of 6 turkey buzzards started circling me. They got pretty close and a few were giving me the eye. I guess from up in the air, I look like I am ready to drop?? ha ha Sorry buzzards, you will have to find another meal, I lived to hike another day.

I had thought about hitting the Horns of Dilemma afterwards, but I did not want to push my luck with my hurt ankle. A few miles up, around and down this one was enough. Always a nice place to visit with wonderful views.
