Dusk light atop Red Mountain 3, between Ouray and Silverton.

On Wednesday evening we hiked up to the 12,890 ft. summit of Red Mountain No. 3 to watch the sunset and the full moon rise.

A full moon rises over Brown Mountain, as seen from the summit of Red 3, November.

As you can see we’re hurting for snow out here in the San Juans. But, the lack of snow made for a fairly easy hike up there in just our regular hiking boots and gaiters. No snowshoes necessary!

It felt good to pull the camera out again and scratch that photo itch!
