Last January there was a Super Blue Blood Moon, which won’t happen again for another 19 years, and I was lucky enough to spend it at Indian Bread Rocks.Continue reading “Return to Indian Bread Rocks”
I stopped in a cactus forest for a few nights to rest and absorb some sun. There is a large of variety of cacti here, so if you see something you know the name of, please let us know!Continue reading “Cactus Forest in the Arizona Desert”
When I left my job and home to be nomadic in January 2018 the first place I stopped and stayed for more than a single night was in the hills around Lake Havasu Arizona. It was the first time in my life where I finally felt free, and so I hold a lot of sentimentality for this place.Continue reading “Solitude in the Lake Havasu Hills”
The sun had risen about 30 minutes earlier, but it decided to hide behind a rock to do it all over again. I can understand, it was a glorious sunrise!
I climbed the mountains behind my campsite early this morning because they were blocking my view of the Blood Moon eclipse. Unfortunately there was always another mountain once at the top, but I was still treated to some magical lighting as the sun came.
First, it is a Blue Moon which means it’s the second Full Moon in the same month, a very rare occurrence. Second, the moon is at the closest it gets to Earth, meaning it looks bigger than usual. This is called a Super Moon. And third, right before the moon sets there will a Blood Moon which is an eclipse where the light from the sun passes through the Earth’s atmosphere filtering out the blue light leaving only red.
Quite the combination wouldn’t you say? I’m told we won’t experience this again in for decades.
I woke up after my first night at Saddle Mountain to this beautiful sunset. I’m really loving the deserts of Arizona!
