This was last night’s very-heavy-moon-just-before-the-actual-full-moon evening. It was so beautiful to spend it with the mustangs in the coolness after the heat of the day started to fall away and the gnats buzzed off for the night.
While the moon was rising in the east … fireworks were starting to spark in the west.
What a glorious evening of sweet wildness under that June mustang moon!
