CT: New Haven County- Castle Craig Moon & Friendship Rising

Once a month Hubbard Park keeps the road open to drive up to Castle Craig in the evening for the full moon rising. It was a clear and warm ish Fall Day so while it’s an hour and a half drive I thought I might give myself a nudge and drive on up!

I definitely got a lot more than I expected. The leaves had turned just enough to offer a breathtaking view from the edge of the cliffs (keep children back!). I shivered as I watched folks hanging over the edge and even sitting on top of the castle’s top.

The colors brightened under the setting sun so brilliantly. I made the effort to bring my lens ball and had my own fun balancing it on top of the castle to capture the reflecting sun. I met some great people at the top too- Ethel and Bonnie – we found we had a great deal in common in our outdoor adventures.

I was thrilled to learn that the full moon rising was expected only minutes after the sunset. With an exciting turn of your head the moment was fulfilled as a huge pink moon started its rise over the landscape.

I started on top of the castle and then took some shots between the fall leaves at its base. How fulfilling to see the changing colors, the sun set, the moon rising and making some new friends!
