The Full Hunter’s Moon occurs this year on Wednesday, October 8. According to the Old Farmers’ Almanac, it is the only month when the moon is in the sky all night long, from sunset to sunrise. Legend states that if you stare at a Full Hunter’s Moon with a question in mind, it will become clear what needs to be done. Extend your Glenwood Springs stay to make the most of this celestial event and possibly get answers to a few of your most nagging questions. For full moon fun:
Hike it. Bring a flashlight just in case, but the lunar glow should provide plenty of wattage to guide you on your trek. Recommended hikes include hoofing it to the top Sunlight Mountain or Red Mountain. The hard work is worth the effort. A full moon over the Elk Range or the Roaring Fork Valley is a sight to behold.
Soak in it. Glenwood Hot Springs is open until 10 p.m. so why not stay until closing time gazing at the giant pearl in the sky while you soak in the mineral-rich waters. What could be more relaxing? For a truly tranquil experience, take a turn in the bubble chairs or get a massage at the Spa of the Rockies.
Park it. Find a tree-free place to park the car, a convertible if possible. Load up a stargazing app to your smartphone and puzzle over the constellations in the sky. For open sky views, you can’t beat CMC Spring Valley Campus.
