See sunrise then go to the canyon

My family and I woke up early and started driving towards Mount Washburn. We found a great viewing spot near the mountain and waited. There we could see Elephant Back Mountain, Hot springs, the canyon, and the Tetons. Then we watched the sunrise. It was the best sunrise of my life. After that we rushed to the canyon and hiked the brink of Lower Falls. There we were on the top of a waterfall looking through the canyon and seeing the sunrise. That morning I had the best experience of my life.
