From the Earth to the Moon

IMG_1992You can’t say the week was without its variety.

First the solar eclipse, and then four days in Grand Teton and Yellowstone parks.  So here I’ve documented the morning rainbow at the feet of the Lower Yellowstone Falls (it vanished a few minutes later as the sun rose), and below is the diamond ring as the sun emerged from behind the moon.

I’ve stood on the bring of the Grand Canyon of the Yellowstone, been pelted by the cold drizzle of geysers, and been stuck in traffic jams caused by a bison, or a whole herd thereof, ambling down the road.  (In fact one of my few anxieties has been to avoid wrapping the car around Miss Buffalo or Mr. Elk.)

I’ve been traveling for over six weeks now, and it’s not so much that I want to stop traveling, it’s that I want to travel in the same place for a while.  If you know what I mean.  But I’ll be spending the next two days in a car heading back to New Mexico, and after that back to the daily delights of home life.

In the mean time, check out the moon.  Any color is strictly an artifact of my camera’s computer working on the puzzling problem of a bright distant object glowing in the dark, but it was dramatic, so I left it in.
