Bike riding and hiking under the almost full moon
It didn't take long for the mountain shadows to stretch out across the valley and tap the mountains on the other side.
Despite the pending darkness, Desert Girl asked if we could go on an adventure hike down a gully. I couldn't resist. So we took off, trying to wend our way through the brush.
I had Desert Boy pose to hold the moon.
Eventually the canyon got too brushy, so we climbed out and walked on the higher ground. Along the way we found a desiccated rabbit.
It was getting pretty dark as we biked back, and I was able to adjust my camera settings to get a pretty good closeup of the moon. It's so cool seeing the lava fields and craters that are so far away.
