K and I rolled out early this morning for a snowbike ride. To our relief, we didn't see any hunters' vehicles parked in the usual places, making me feel more at ease in the forest. We missed actual sunrise but we played in low angle sun at a favorite lookout point.
This evening, we headed out for our sunset hike and saw birds flying south across the colorful skies. They seem like they're running a little late... but who am I to second-guess them?
As the sun set, the moon simultaneously rose on the opposite side of our world. K was "over the moon"!
