Finally was able to make it out to a sunflower field and I was lucky to have chosen one close by and that was near peak!

A somewhat-controlled fire broke out on the back side of Hahns Peak and we thought it would make for an excellent moonrise (94% full) on this day of camping at Steamboat Reservoir. We waited and waited for the moon to appear and according to The Photographer’s Ephemeris, we were lined up perfectly. But….. the smoke was so thick in the distance, we never saw the moon peaking over the distant horizon. Not until it was up at this height did we finally see it.

Spent Memorial Day weekend camping at North Sterling State Park in the NE corner of Colorado. I would highly recommend staying at this campground too. Beautiful surroundings, clean and well kept campground without all the riff-raff and noise found at Jackson Lake State Park.
We got an extra surprise Saturday night with the highly unexpected appearance of the Aurora Borealis to boot! Very faint, but check the bottom two images. Notice the movement of the lighter, cloud-like waves.
