The experience I am going to tell you about is that I waited at the summit of a mountain on the edge of my city to appreciate the sunrise. It was on the 6th of October during the last national holiday. After playing video games for five days in a row, I was fed up with this form of entertainment, and desperately wanted to do something more interesting.
Before I went to bed, it suddenly occurred to me that why not go to the nearby mountain to watch a sunrise? It seemed that the last time I did this was in primary school when my teacher asked us to write an essay describing the process. So it must be a special experience to see if the view had changed over all these years.
Only at the mountain could I get rid of the air pollution and the numerous high-rise buildings that would block my eyesight and prevent me from enjoying the incredible view. So although the sunrise happened at around 6 o’clock, this article is from laokaoya website, I had to get up far earlier to cover the time consumed on the road and the climbing. After careful calculation, I decided to set out at 3 am.
I arrived at the summit at a quarter past 5, and several people were already waiting there. They seemed much more experienced than me, having brought heavy coats to shield the cold, whereas the only thing I could do was to keep moving to warm myself. 40 minutes later, the sunrise began, dyeing the clouds and the mist first gold and then bright red. It was the most extraordinary scenery I had ever seen in the last decade. All the waiting and the cold I had endured were totally worth it, and I felt lucky I had made the decision.
