Although it is a perfect time of year for daylight beauty, spring and summer usually aren't good seasons for seeing full moons. Afternoon thunderstorms leave clouds that linger into the evening. However, for the most recent full moon, we lucked out because the clouds cleared by the time the moon rose.
We and our friends hiked to a beautiful viewpoint after our "Full Moon Dinner". We raptly waited for the first glow of the moon over the ridge to the east of us.
Up, just a bit more until just a few trees touched it.
And then, we saw the beauty of the fully risen moon in the clouds that it lit up in orange.
I love the beauty of our world!
