p.e. no.08 - Frost/Moon

This morning a weird frost settled on all the vegetation. It had large flat crystals that covered the plants in irregular patterns and grew out to maybe a quarter inch. In sunlight it produced a halo effect.









Dennis, Cody and I finally finished closing the last two cabins today. There wasn't much to do except unhook the propane tanks and shut off the power. Then we all went skiing down the road toward town. All of us needed the practice.

Later, around sunset, I kept an eye out for the moonrise. It would be full tonight. I knew it would also rise later than the previous night, and probably farther north. I caught a few pictures of the red stained mountains while waiting for the moon.

Hey Alonzo,

Yes, very cool. It was all over the place up here that morning. I don't remember ever seeing this kind of frost back in Indiana.
