Good Morning Moon

 The silly moon forgot to disappear this morning,
just hung around like a Christmas ornament 
waiting to hang on our orange tree

 Since I was up annoyingly early I took a hike.

 The trail was littered with counter top material

and some of my fellow hikers had excessively hairy legs

Don't worry, I didn't have a heart attack



Look at the moss on the rocks in the background.
In Arizona, we take our green anyway we can get it.

I watched that frost moon rise over and over on the way to Provo. It pays to drive the I15 next to the mountains.

While unloading the car in Provo we watched it rise again above "Y" mountain. Love you frosty moon!

The desert is just as beautiful, in its own way, as any Northern vista. Thanks for showing it off. :)

Amazing pictures! That thing at the end of the trail looks like Cousin It. Amazing place to be able to hike to! The moon isn't too fond of bedtime over here either!

I'm moonstruck.

The most beautiful moon I've ever seen was in Arizona. How peaceful to have a quiet hike all to yourself - well, and with the hairy legged set. We used to see tarantulas at the stable when we had horses. They're pretty docile actually, but they can jump! And when I saw one silhouetted on my drapes against the moonlight I drew a firm line.

It was pretty, wasn't it. Where did you hike?

I've never seen the trail that deserted. Lucky.

The moon is beautiful up here this week too. Your walking trail looks so exotic to me - I've never walked in a desert.

A girl after my own heart! Enjoying the desert! And the those with extra hairy legs. :)

What a cool photo of the moon. Looks like being an early riser really paid off this time. Minus the spider, of course.

;)

I miss the desert, thanks for sharing your photos.

Great pictures ... are you guys so used to tarantulas that they are not alarming for the most part?
