I walked to the top in the dark, thanks to those who lined the path with night lights. I like to arrive early, it was only 6am when I climbed the Tor.

I enjoying sitting, waiting for dawn, with a committed few that had been up all night.  After an hour the Tor welcomed a big crowd waiting for the golden light of sunrise.
