Three Mornings at the Park
The cell phone did well on these three mornings but it would have been nice to have my good camera along.
Matzke Park has a lot to offer. In addition to the Butterfly Garden it has fine old trees and a great walking trail. I especially like the trail very early in the morning from about 6:15 AM. Yes, it is dark.
I try to get out most mornings for 6 laps of brisk walking. (4.2 miles).
This morning (Apr 17) about 7:00 AM it was getting light and I caught the moon setting over the Cougar Country water tower which the sun was starting to highlight. You can see this when walking to the west along the north side.
I was a bit late, 7:20 AM this morning. (Apr 18) I saw this as I was driving toward the park. It was floating very low right over Jones road at about the Met. By the time I parked and got out.. it had risen again and was to the west of Jones.... Not exactly the Albuquerque Balloon Festival but another gorgeous morning to be outside..
And Easter Morning, April 20, about 6:30 AM... ground fog blanketed the cricket field while the morning sky was a fitting welcome to this special day.
