Waning Gibbous Moon Magic

Two nights in a row as I’m driving home, the night sky suddenly reveals a magnificent moonrise.

At first glimpse it’s surreal – so bright and a magnificent shade of gold. This is an unfiltered shot from tonight.

Lakeside Hike above 10,000ft

Afternoon sunlight filters through trees

and dances atop the lake like twinkling diamonds.

In the distance,

peaks above the tree line with their pockets of snow that stayed all summer

add to the beauty and feeling of remoteness

the trill and rat-a-tat-tat of birds create the soundtrack.

Snow Day 10/10/19

I love autumn. Aspen leaves changing from green to shades of yellow that dance and catch the sunlight in ways the delight. But in Colorado, the calendar may say October 10th, but winter demands attention.

The day before was 75, today 10/11, is 40 and the warmth of the sun fierce. But the warning of winter coming is clear.
