The end of many steep trail miles along the Trans Catalina Trail led me to Parson’s Landing, A place where morning light seemed to linger, and the sunsets appeared to explode with beauty. I spent two days exploring the area, and each morning there, I would walk along the beach. Feeling the smooth pebbled beach under my feet, as the waves danced through the stones lining the shallow waters.
As the day gave way to dusk, the sun lit the sky ablaze over the Western Horizon. Parson’s Landing was treated with a firework-like display of fiery rays that stretched into the cloud line as deep as it could. Waves gently broke along the shore in front of my camp and blanketed the pebble beach in a series of ocean-born mirrors that reflected the colors of the distant burning sky.
