… but it’s lighting up a large formation to the right of the balcony. This outcropping looks like the Taj Mahal with a bunch of Taj Mahals behind it; or maybe it looks like Red Square. With binoculars, I can trace the light and shadow, the striations, the grays and greens and reds and whites (there’s some snow high up).
It’s chilly but not cold on the balcony. After a half hour there, watching the whole line of rocks slowly light up, and watching various bright pink contrails, I’m warming up by the fireplace.
Off to breakfast.
