|According to our astronomer guide, this moon was at about 56% brightness|
Our experience that night was a perfect segue to yesterday's adventure through the Valle de la Luna, or Moon Valley. We were able to see the large quantities of salt present in the desert. The mystery of various formations from long ago continue to puzzle us all until today; we saw the remnants of one particular formation, Las Tres Marias. And something that Carolyn and I have an affinity for doing is capturing sunsets. Everywhere in the world we've been, a sunset seems to have captured our attention.

Walking around Valle de la Luna gave us plenty of time to think and observe. Trekking up and down the sand dunes, through the various caverns, traversing salt and rock formations gave us so much perspective.
Do we have the fortitude to withstand the test of time like the elements in the desert? Are our dreams as colorful as the sunset? Will we travel the earth like the wind-blow sand? Or will our passions dry-out in the desert heat?
