We went down to the Mono Lake Overlook to watch the full moon rise over the Lake. Alas, there were clouds to the east. We waited but the moon seemed to be a no-show. Another photographer nearby packed up his equipment, ready to go.
But wait! What is that rising up above Boundary Peak?
As the moon rose out of the misty clouds the sky turned pink and lavender as it caught the last rays of the setting sun.
The hues deepend.
It was worth drive down off our mountain after all.
I am feeling better, I hope I will be well enough to go back to the cabin next week although I know that 9,600' is not a good place for someone who is not well. We'll see.
