I woke up at 4:45AM determined to get pictures of the Super Blue Blood Moon. What I did not do is get up right away and by the time I did and got dressed and out the door it was 5:15 and the moon was more then half covered. Tom got up, made coffee, and brought it out. Considering how cold I was it was very nice holding and drinking the hot liquid. I took 121 photos and these I felt were the best.
|Just starting to see light from the sun in the East.
|A little slice of the moon is peeking out.
|Looking back to the East a little color is showing as the sun gets closer.
|I was experimenting with different settings on my camera as the moon
started to set behind the mountains.
|Then it was gone from our sight.
|George stopped so I could get one more photo.
|Suzie following behind.
|The sun popped over the mountains and because I was chilled to the bone,
by this time, I took this through the windshield of the Stinger "B".
|Clemson in the back seat "buckled" and ready to go.
|Saying one last see you later we moved back towards the Stinger "B".
|They are off into a "sea" of dust.
Just before they pulled out a motor home went by leaving a large trail of dust.
It looks very empty out our door right now; it was fun having the four of them as neighbors. Now, for the next couple of days, we will enjoy this time, just the two of us, while at the same time we will be looking forward to the next time we cross paths. Then we too will head off down the road to our next adventure.
The mission today was to find the Labyrinth on Palm Canyon Road, we had heard about, and scout a place to park for a few days.
|We found it, with the help of directions from a friend.
Plus, you can use Google Maps to find it. "Hazel" directed us right
to it this morning.
|Standing at the entrance, taking a deep breath, acknowledging in my mind
that I am taking this time to quietly walk and let my thoughts wander,
as they may, I walked in.
|I did take a few photos as I walked.
At one point I looked up and I could see
Tom in the distance.
|Tom took this picture, it looks like I was just starting the walk.
|I had read in Doug's Blog, Miss Adventure Travels, that others had left things
in the center of the circle so I was expecting this.
|I will admit I did not walk the path out. I could see Tom waiting over by the
car and I knew we had other things we wanted to do. So from this point I
took the short way back to the entrance and made my exit.
|Until I looked back I had not noticed all the Octillo around.
|As Tom walked around the area he took some pictures of the cacti.
|Heading towards Palm Canyon.
|One of several green Ocotillo we saw today.
|Looking ahead at Palm Canyon. We did not drive all the way today as
we are planning on coming back and hike to where we can see the Palms.
|Just a few green leaves on this one.
|I took this shot using one of the Effect's on my camera called,
|Clouds towards the northwest turned a pretty pink in the sun's after glow.
|A little while later we could see the light from the rising moon in the east.
|So ends another day parked in this beautiful place in the desert.
We enjoyed today and hope you did, too.
