The Winter Moon

I can feel the winter snows getting ready to visit the high desert. I’m down at 2000 feet so I don’t have worry. Winter’s not a bad time to move about though. There’s nothing better then hiking through fresh snow under a full moon. I remember doing that a few years ago up on the mountain, over by Duck Creek. It was frigid, but beautiful. The forest was blanketed with dense white that glowed silver.

Other then that, I am expecting to see some magnificent thunder storms invade the red rock canyons. They usually come until mid November. That might not be the case though, it might just stay dry.
