Coming home from my sister-in-law's house around 9:00 this evening, I was driving east and the huge, yellow moon rose behind Mount Baker. Baker and the mountain range were pale gray against the sky while the moon was luminous. It almost was too beautiful to be real.
I wished I had my camera with me, but I didn't. I took out my cell phone to see if I could take even a poor-quality picture, but the battery was too low.
I watched the moon and the mountain as long as I could on my drive.
