I wanted to get a nice view of the harvest super blood moon eclipse and after doing some map work decided that the four peaks would provide the views I was looking for.

Of course, I can't justify driving that road without actually doing a hike, so I headed up for an afternoon trip to the summit of Browns. There were three cars in the lot when I started, and I had passed all three groups before the saddle, leaving the whole place to myself for the rest of the day. :y:

It was in the low 80s to start, but there was a great breeze, and the afternoon provided enough shade to make the trip quite pleasant.

Not wanting to hike down in the dark hours after sunset, I headed back to the trailhead and found a nice spot to watch the moonrise.

To be honest, I've always found lunar eclipses to be pretty boring. I like harvest moons more. So I was curious to see how the two would work together. Not bad. I wish I had a better camera. I think good moon photos require a much better zoom than I have, not to mention some experience and skill that I also don't have. Doh.

Rolled down the hill in the dark -- except for that full moon lighting the way. :)

Just a few colors getting started amongst the oaks and other high-elevation leafy things.
