The Frost Moon

The Frost Moon

November’s full moon hike

 

 

 

Winter is starting just this week.

Moon Monkey is celebrating this event, this Saturday, November 24th, in the cold Laqlouq mountains under November’s full moon light.

The Frost Moon, or the Beaver Moon, is named by the Native Americans, who track time following the moon cycle.

While the frost starts invading the mountains, beavers run and search for shelters. And us Monkeys, hike the borderline of Ehmej and Laqlouq, called “Jreid el Laqlouq”
