Nothing better than camping under a full moon at a remote desert location. The moon was so bright, I didn’t need any artificial light.

  4. Beautiful shots of the moonrise, Mike! My wife is always saying we should get up early (like 3 or 4 am)and drive out to get sunrise in the different areas we visit. I told her we should just spend the night before in the area so we don’t have to drive so far. I’ll show her your camp photo but I’m sure she’d rather stay in a motel.
