After photographing a sunrise over the fog last week, Scott Schilling and I came around a turn and spotted this amazing display of crepuscular rays (columns of sunlit air separated by darker cloud-shadowed regions). Fortunately the road descended in elevation and we were able to quickly get our gear and essentially reset the rising sun!
