# Roof of the Sky #

I called it "Journey to the roof of the sky". When we had to wake up at 3am and take the 4WD jeeps to mount Penanjakan viewpoint (2770 m) to see the sun?s golden rise over spectacular craters casting their shadow over a desolate sea of sand. We arrived 30 minutes before sunrise. It was very cold. Slowly it started to get light and little by little the sun came out from behind the clouds. The long journey from Jakarta to the Penanjakan viewpoint was definitely worth it......Amazing, awesome, gorgeous - all the feeling at same time..... My dream came true. I saw the 1st golden rays from Mount Bromo, where the clouds along the horizon and the sun behind it make a roof of the sky....

Mount Batok, Bromo, And Semeru

Mount Bromo located in Tengger Caldera, East Java.
And from Penanjakan mount viewpoint we can see this 3 mount almost in line. Look at the picture, 1st is Mount Batok, mount Bromo (creater always have smoke), and the highest is Semeru or Mahameru.

The light....

When the golden rays kiss your face, and the awesome mount behind...with the cold weather.... this is what I feel when see around on mount Penanjakan since early morning till 8am.
