Hunter's Moon over the Mesa; our last night in Utah


Hunter's Moon over the Mesa; our last night in Utah




Our last night in Utah, after a three week stay, featured the Hunter's Moon (Oct 29th) rising over the mesa of the Capital Reef National Park.



Larry grilled us turkey burgers for our final meal here as the Full Moon began to rise. Pretty neat, I must say - and, the turkey burgers were great!  ;-)

When we first arrived, there literally no birds - the season was changing. While we were here, there were a couple of small flocks of woodpecker-type larger birds flew through, but never stopped long enough to even get a photo. Then, for a few days, we had a bunch of little Juncos. I got a few photos of them, this time.




We had extended our visit for a week when Nancy became ill near the end of the first planned two weeks. She received excellent care at the Wayne County Health Center clinic and pharmacy and is ready to get on the flight from Salt Lake City, through Dallas, to Springfield during the day tomorrow.

It was a great visit, again, of course!  ;-)
