Super Blood Wolf Moon

With snow showers during the day, I didn’t give much thought to staying up late on a work night to take photos of the lunar eclipse. Just before getting ready for bed, I peeked out our front window and was surprised to see stars and the beginnings of the lunar eclipse.  I set up my tripod, put a long lens on my camera, bundled up and headed out the front door.  Lucky for me, I was able to set up my tripod on our steps and have a front row seat to the eclipse.  There were passing clouds that interfered with my photos, but I was able to get a handful of decent shots before heavier cloud cover rolled in at 11:00 p.m.

Walk In The Woods

Mike and I piled on the Fitbit steps last weekend by hiking some of the local trails. The fall colors were vibrant and the air crisp. We started the weekend by enjoying the stars and full moon on Friday.

A couple of photos in the backyard before we ventured out on Saturday.

We left our neighborhood, walked through the woods, past a pond and ended up on the Lake Superior Hiking Trail.

The next day we hiked in Hartley Park.
