Sunset moonrise over Mount Shasta.
The rainy weather of the last few days broke last night and it was nice a clear today. Mount Shasta looks beautiful in a mantle of fresh snow. I got up early this morning to see if there was an interesting sunrise and, although the mountain was visible, the sky was totally clear, rendering the sunrise beautiful but photographically it was not compelling. By this evening there were more clouds to catch the light, making the sunset more enticing. As an added bonus the moon was rising above the mountain. The clouds and color were noteworthy enough to post here. I hope y’all appreciate the view as much as I did.
It has not escaped my notice that all I have posted about this month has been sunrises and sunsets. I hope to get myself back on track and spend more time writing about the mountains and trails soon. I had a handful of lengthy posts I had been planning on during the summer but the smoke killed all of that, I never got around to it and now I have been in a bit of a writing rut. I will be back on track soon I hope and starting putting up some more interesting articles, not just eye candy.
That being said, looking at the forecast, it sure looks like we have a chance for a white Christmas…at least a little snow on Christmas Day itself. It would be wonderful if that would happen. If that is the case, I will try to post some pictures here. Until then, Merry Christmas!
