Gorgeous Moon in Placitas

The rising moon in the Eastern sky was exceptionally beautiful tonight – 99% illuminated.  November is such a beautiful month in Placitas.  Just this past week we had a nice dusting of snow on the Sandia Mountains sandiasnowand now back to temps in the high 60’s low 70’s for the upcoming week.  Leaves are at their peak and slowing falling, crisp mornings and magnificent sunsets.  We’ve stocked up on cedar and pinon and will be enjoying the amazing smell from our outdoor Kiva for many nights to come.
