Hope over the Horizon – Sunrise on the edge of the Ngorogoro Crater

While camping on the edge of the Ngorogoro Crater in Tanzania I decided to wake up early to watch the sunrise.

What I witnessed was nothing short of breathtaking.

Snuggled up inside my hoodie and scarf, I sat alone, mesmerized by the changing horizon before me and watched as the African sky changed from an abyss of black and midnight blue to a bright mix of amethyst and tangerine orange, and as the sun began to rise, spears of light pierced through the clouds.

And in that moment, I thought to myself that there is always hope over a new horizon.
