I had dinner at a friends the other night.
The moon was almost full – Sunday nite was the nite.
Friday nite it snowed just enough to cover the mountains.
The first full snow of the season.
It was clear driving home around 10:30.
The 99% full moon shone bright on all the peaks.
Stanley Lake Lodge lies on its namesake, Stanley Pass.
Treeline is about half way up the mountains.
A fairly wide open valley.
Plenty of snow. Plenty of reflections.
It wasn’t quite like, “almost daylight”, but damn close.
Close enough to cast shadows on the snow – MOON SHADOWS.
Cat Stevens had a hit song with that title (he who changed his name to, Yusef Islam).
Bottom line, … it was pretty damn cool.
