Is it just me or is it easier to wake up for sunrise when you’re traveling then it is when you’re home? Before I went to bed, I set my alarm for 5:30 am. I woke up the next morning before my alarm, bright-eyed and ready to go. It was amazing.
I had every intention of visiting Cucumber Falls Waterfall in Ohiopyle State Park but what I did not expect was all this amazing morning fog. I couldn’t help myself. I kept on pulling over every 5 minutes trying to capture it. I was pulling over on the side of the road or turning into little roads along the way. There was one road in particular that looked like it was half foggy and half not so I had to pull over. While I was taking pictures, I noticed a couple walking their two dogs. Turns out one of them was a puppy so I had to wait for them to come closer so I could ask to pet the puppy. LOL. Well, the puppy was 5 months old and so playful. After talking to their owners for a little while, they said that they lived on the property on top of the hill and told me that I should go up there for an even better view.
OMG this was the view from their hill. Long story short, I did not make it to the waterfall. LOL. And this was the gentlemen and the older dog walking by on the road I met them on. That sunrise glow though!
