The almost-Full Moon rises of the Sangre de Cristo mountains watching over Crestone on January 2, 2014, as seen from the Yak ‘n Cracker / ChoKuRei Farm Store:
Greetings and Salutations from the tiny mountain-slopes town of Crestone, Colorado, USA. It is late evening Tuesday, January 6, 2015. Happy New Year!
I have safely returned from a solo 2-night invigorating Full Moon snow-shoeing trip in the high country (above 10,000 ft / above 3 km elevation) in the majestic Sangre de Cristo mountain range of the Northern San Luis Valley in Southern Colorado (USA).
After letting a local friend in Search and Rescue know of my hike and planned return, I hiked up in the light of the Full Moon, pitched my tent around 11,000 ft. elevation.
Some PHOTOS of this trip:

The late-sunset purples caught by my camera are pretty close to the real thing; the reds moved more towards maroon than seen here:
Sunrise at last! (for my tent site, at about 12 noon):
And then all the way back to the San Luis Valley floor…
I needed that.
