It was a cold, cloudy morning, but that's often the recipe for a beautiful sunrise, so I got up early to make the drive out to Bear Butte. I'd discovered this eastern facing window of rock on a previous hike. The entire mountain is sacred to the Lakota people, and this spot in particular seems to hold particular significance. . .it's no wonder why.
