They said to see Sunday's moon! I had it marked in my calendar so I packed the usual Sunday life's happenings into Saturday and that freed me up to head out to witness the "Cold Moon". I picked Glenbow Ranch as the place to be. After the moon show I could catch the sun rise and then incorporate a lengthy hike throughout the park. The moon looked spectacular as I drove to my destination. My preference though was to secure a different shot than just a big full orange circle and this is what I captured. From the loads of photos I took, this was the best, a tad fuzzy but I'll take it.

I know to always look behind me too because it can be just as pretty.
In fact it was pretty & erie all at the same time.
It was much colder in the valley bottom.
I found a spot to sit and just savoured this Sunday.
The clouds danced offering up photogenic opportunities.
I worked my way to the little pond then....
.....followed along Tiger Lily
and more shadows
Here are the two other "kisses" I received!

Three hours and ten kilometers later I was back at my car ready to head home for a hot chocolate. It would only be a matter of twenty-five minutes and the milk will be in the pot beginning to warm. How fortunate to have such a lovely Park just out my back door. It is close enough yet far enough away to afford me that get-away from it all feeling.
