Spring snow in Summit County

FRISCO — More spring snow in Summit County set the scene for a quiet sunrise Friday morning, where only a quick tinge of bright pink touched the sky for less than five minutes before fading into a much subtle palette. But it always pays to stick around for a few minutes after the initial sunup moments, as you never know exactly what’s going to unfold. Friday, well after it all seemed well and done, the sun peeked out to light up the foreground with a warm brilliance that was definitely a harbinger of spring.
