I don’t sleep well. Maybe I do…maybe I just don’t need a lot of sleep. I’ve been waking up between 2 – 4 am every morning the past week. Yesterday I brewed my coffee sometime before 4, enjoying it before the rest of the world wakes up. At least before the rest of the Springdale – Zion National Park world wakes up.
It’s just before 7:30 am and the sun has not made it over the mountains yet, but it is shining on the Eagle Crags. I’m sitting with a cuppa at the Park House Cafe, enjoying the sunrise and a couple of hummingbirds chirping and flying around the flowers next to my table. They serve one of my favorite coffees – Cafe Ibis, the Mexican Chiapas roast.
Today I feel awake and rested after days of not. This is a good thing – much work to do. To be in Zion is heaven. To live and work in Springdale is heaven on earth.
