At this time of year, and in March, we get two sunrises each morning.

The sun rises first in the valley between The Mountain With No Name and LC Mountain, then it rises again about an hour later over the top of LC Mountain.

For a short time, we have the luxury of saying we’ll do something at sunrise, but then choose which sunrise we actually meant.
