Almost a full moon

I've paid attention to the cycles of the moon a lot more after doing full moon hikes.

I can't say I really noticed them before, but moon rise and set times change much more rapidly than sunrise and sunset-- by hours each day, rather than minutes.

Yesterday, the almost full moon was well above the horizon, while it was still light enough to take a picture.

Tonight, it doesn't yet top the treeline, at 9:30 EST.

Please share your thoughts. I enjoy hearing from fellow nature observers, as well as whomever else drops by.
