I would like to dedicate a song I wrote years ago to Russell. I have read Russell's Blog many times as I am an avid hiker/environmentalist/prospector and I have always found his writing to describe these beautiful places as very inspirational. Because of his writing I have hiked some of these places he has described. I hope the rest of us can pick up the torch he carried and continue to preserve these wild and historic areas.

This song is called "First Light". This song came to me as a vision of the sun rising over the mountain tops somewhere in the Sierra Nevada. It could be anywhere as you hear this song play.
