Catching a Winter Moonrise at Manitou Lodge

February 15th, 2017 by Manitou Lodge

This gorgeous series emphatically depicts the beauty of the lodge and its setting even in winter. The photos were provided by a recent guest who was kind enough to forward these shots and permit us to use them. We’re especially grateful since it takes diligence, willingness to stay up late in the dark and cold, as well as a bit of luck to capture a series like this: First, you’ll need to be out there when a full moon is rising. Secondly, the full moon in question will have to be the February moon as that’s the only time of year the moon rises right behind the lodge between the trees. Finally, rain or substantial cloud cover will have to be absent, a rarely  attainable  condition in February.  All  worthwhile, however, when you’re allowed to  witness sights as spectral as these.
