Mooning around on the (barefoot) trail

September 30, 2015

full moon september

My little pocket camera does not do too well with moon shots . . . Tuesday morning’s image (above) is about as good as it gets.

Here’s a very blurry picture of Sunday night’s lunar eclipse . . . what a spectacular show that was!

Summer ended with a blaze of hot days that continues through this week; to deal with it I’ve taken to dawn patrol trail excursions as I prepare for my October Rim-to-Rim adventure at the Grand Canyon.

Since I’ll be hiking across with others, I’m wondering if I’ll have to wear sandals to keep up. Right now, as fall begins, my bare feet have a summer-ful of experience on lovely rocky trails.

Here’s a poem that happened as I posted these photos:

prickly pear and full moon

Rocks and cactus . . .

raven silhouette

. . . raven ruckus . . .

turkey vultures perched in tree

. . . vultures thinkin’ . . .

darkling beetle

. . . beetle stinkin’. . .


. . . full moon show . . .


. . . ridgeline glow.


Sun soft,

moon pale–


morning trail.

Happy Autumn Trails!

    I love that shadow picture! But really, somebody should buy you a decent camera.

      . . . “Somebody” being the name of the ship that just sailed over the blue horizon 🙂
