Scenes of the Moon and the Mountains, a Halloween Special

Shine on shiny moon!  Shiny moon, shine on, shine on.  I normally don't like music when visiting websites, but when checking out this gallery of the moon on Daniel McVey's website, I dig it.  Or, at least, I'm not annoyed by it, which is most of the time.  Since it is Halloween, I decided to share a few photos from around town, and a few photos from Daniel.  

But first, I wanted to share a few links to a few photo sessions featuring a zombie attack.  Yep, that's right, zombies.  Click here to see a slideshow, and here to see an article on what a zombie photo shoot looks like. Ok, and one more just for the sake of Halloween.

Tonight in Breckenridge the moon will be out, and the kids will have a snow-free Halloween.  Most years they're battling frigid temps, layering their costume over a puffy coat, and trying to keep feeling in their hands by eating candy.  Mountain kids don't always have it easy, but tonight's festivities are gonna be great!  Check out the Summit County Mom's page for more information.

I walked outside to take out the trash last night, and there was an amazingly clear star-filled sky above.  Seeing the thick white stripe of our galaxy is always a nice treat.  If you're so lucky to attend a mountain wedding near the Breckenridge area, then you should escape the festivities to check out the stars for yourself.  You just might not want to go back inside.

We had some pretty heavy monsoon rains these past few weeks, but I'm already noticing social media chatter with the words "cooler mornings" and "feels like fall" going around.  Regardless, we suggest you grab a jacket, a beverage of your choice, and then go outside and stare up and the sky.  A saying comes to mind, and that's to "shoot for the moon, because even if you miss, you still land among the stars!"
