Capitol Reef: Temple of the Moon

“Full Moon Over Temple of the Moon”

Sometimes I get lucky.  Walking along the washes between the Temple of the Moon and Temple of the Sun in Capitol Reef, I looked east and saw a full moon rising over the horizon. I positioned myself west of the Temple of the Moon.   I waited over an hour for the sky to darken and the moon to rise above the temple monolith.  While waiting, I thought about the spiritual ramifications that were felt by the ancient native Americans thousands of years ago.   It was well worth the wait.
