Blue Moon is defined as the second full moon in a calendar month. The first full moon was August 1. The second full moon was on August 31, 2012. The second full moon is called Blue Moon. Because this occurance doesn't happen very often, thus the coined phrase, "Once in a Blue Moon"
I realize that the above photo is not the best quality (blurry and overexposed)... but it was the best I got with the camera I had.
photo taken yesterday on Labor Day (09-03-12) on our ascent to the top of Lone Peak.
Some things can never be understood unless you actually experience it yourself. No matter how much one might describe an experience even using the best vocabulary and photographs, it is almost impossible for another to comprehend the range of emotions one felt on their journey…. from pain to joy, from sorrow to peace, from fatigue to exhilaration, from hopelessness to victory. Above is a photograph taken from yesterday's 13 hour and 50 minute hike up to the Top of Lone Peak. If you look closely you can see the people on the top of the summit. I hope to share more from the insight and lessons learned as well as some more photos.
