Taken atop Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. Hundreds of people had come to watch the sunrise, more than I had ever seen. They came to watch something that happens every day, literally! The sun rises every single day of the year and we don't come outside to watch it. Something about being on a mountain makes people want to wake up early to go watch the single most reliable event in the world. I pondered this for a while, questioning why I too did this.
