14th Annual Smithsonian.com Photo Contest
Angkor Wat Sunrise

Leading up to this trip one of the things I was most excited for was taking a picture of the sunrise at the famous Angkor Wat temple, so I was happy to wake up at 4:30 my first morning in Cambodia. One lesson I learned on my first trip out of North America was that jet lag is for the weak, and must never get in the way of adventure. Also, when this picture was taken I was blissfully unaware of just how hot that Cambodian sun could get.
