lunar 1

total lunar eclipse - aka "blood moon"
The total lunar eclipse, "blood moon," seen from the high desert foothills between Apple Valley, and Lucerne, CA. The full moon was super brilliant. When the earth's shadow began darkening the edge of the moon, several dogs began barking. An eerie howling chorus of coyotes joined in. As moon light slowly turned to darkness, in unison, the barking and howling gave way to sudden, absolute quiet.

lupine car
lupine on california highway 49
Last week I drove the switchback curves of winding historic CA. Highway 49 to the north entrance of Yosemite Park. Rain showers traded with sunlight off and on. At roadside lupine and poppy's
were at their fresh colorful best.

In 2013, mid- August through mid- October on the edge of Yosemite Park raged the devestating 257,000 acre Rim Fire.

I had read that from the ashes of wild fire, wild flowers flourish. When I received an email from a local there that the time for ashes to flowers was right. Off I went.
