Mountain top Moon

Yesterday afternoon we were near the Clark Fork river for a picnic. It was a warmer day than we’ve had. Rain is coming in from the coast so we took advantage of the chance to go out in the woods. But not too far into the woods since it’s hunting season. This waxing moon rose over the craggy peaks near Paradise where the Flathead and Clark Fork Rivers meet just as the sun was going down. We had stopped to watch the sun set over the river and Matt pointed out the moon coming up behind us. Oh yes.

Since I promised sunset photos awhile back, here you go. I took this photo below Friday, late afternoon. It’s dark here by 6 pm. Which seems wrong but it’s nice to have clear sky and a little snow on the mountains now. I’ve been busy with National Novel writing month, thus the sparse posts these last two weeks. And now Thanksgiving is upon us! I hope you are all thankful for something today.

  1. Two stunning photos! I cannot decide which I prefer…
    My second daughter is doing NaNo, too, so her “letters” have been short and infrequent, too.

  2. I’m quite late, but Happy Thanksgiving! I will be in touch with you via email sometime… trying to finish my writing. I will look forward to your direction on publishing. 🙂

  3. Thank you for sharing this beauty, Christine. Wondering what you’re writing about this NaNoWriMo and whether you are finishing up or will continue in December.
