The nearly-full Harvest Moon rises above the Painted Desert and Wupatki National Monument. Two buttes on the eastern horizon (~80 km distant) are Montezuma’s Chair and Roundtop, remnants of ancient volcanoes.
The second image is a composite showing the path of the Moon as it rose above the two buttes.
The third image is a view of the Tloi Eechii cliffs while we were waiting for the Moon to rise.
The photographs were taken from the Doney Mountain Picnic area and overlooking Wupatki National Monument and the Painted Desert.
