I try to catch the sunrise at this location every morning on my commute. At this spot, the trail points nearly due east, so in the summer the Sun rises to the left of the trail, and in the winter it rises to the right. On the morning of the equinox the Sun was almost perfectly centered on the trail. The further we get from the equinox, the further from the trail the Sun rises. It’s a pleasant reminder of the passage of time and the change of seasons.
