Winter View Laurel Mountain

Last year I hiked out in the dark to this location for sunrise. Access during winter is limited to foot traffic and I was lucky that the several feet of snow were already hard and compressed as I didn't have any snow shoes. Unfortunately sunrise was a cloudy affair and I did not get any good light onto Laurel Mountain. Later during the morning there was a small break in the clouds and it created some atmosphere. The creek itself is fed by hot springs and therefore creates the steam.
This year I planned to get back for another attempt, but lack of snow and timing didn't work out.
