moon shadow

We just got back from a wonderful week at Lake Powell- what a way to jump start summer. I stumbled across this tiny arch (in Hansen Creek Canyon) when I was hiking around one morning. Later that day, when it had cooled off- we took the kids and hiked them back up to find it. The sun had set as we walked and by the time we got up to the arch it was dark. The moon was nearly full that night and just perfect for night hiking, casting a distinct moon shadow as you walked. Steve O took this picture with just moonlight and a super long exposure, the arch is actually big enough to crawl through, but you can't really tell from this angle.
Good times, there is truly nothing like being in the middle of the desert, camping under the stars, miles from civilization- no electricity, email, phone or any of the other gadgets that clutter up our lives- just the bare necessities and good, simple, big water fun.

Reminds me of our trip to the lake. Nearly twenty years ago. Could that be right? Phew, happy summer! We'll be out on the 9th!
