On Monday-November 14th, you will be lucky enough to experience a front row seat to the largest Super Moon since 1948! A Super Moon or Perigee Moon appears to balloon up to 14% larger than an Apogee full Moon (traditional moon) and beams up 30% brighter!

November 25th, 2034 will be your next opportunity to witness this spectacular gift of nature, so be sure to savor this moment. The best way to see this interstellar stunner is in a dark, open area, but, if you would like to add some bigger then life illusions to your experience, catch the moon as it rises along the horizon! It will appear even more magnificent!

The moons’ peak will be at 6:52 am on Monday morning, not to worry, that does not mean that it won’t be brilliant that evening, you might even need to wear your sunglasses!

Ahhh, Indian Summer

 

I summer

Why do we call this wonderful time of year Indian Summer? There are many theories, “Indian Giver” is one of the better known sources for this term.

Indian Summer refers to very unseasonable warm and dry weather in late Autumn. There is usually a cold spell with frost preceding this most pleasurable time of year, which lures many into pondering what Winters blustery days might bring! Instead, much to our satisfaction, Indian Summer creeps in, giving us one last opportunity to savor the fading impressions of Summer…Never quite knowing if this magical time will be snatched away in an instant, much like the reputation of an Indian Giver!

Indian Summer here in the Vail Valley usually continues into mid-November, which means there’s still plenty of time left to get out there and take in the beauty that surrounds us!

Area’s First Trophy Home!

 

4-4c

Eagle County‘s first Trophy Home dates back 6,000 years! Built buy nomadic Native Americans, the historical, well preserved Yarmony Pit House was in use through the 1800’s. Native American’s nestled at this site during the long Colorado winters, using this habitation for hunting grounds for thousands of years! They gathered here prior to the Anasazi  Indians creating Colorado’s Mesa Verde and well before the Great Pyramids of Egypt or Stonehenge were erected!

Pg27-2

First unearthed in 1987 near State Bridge, the Yarmony Pit House is one of Colorado‘s oldest archaeological sites. Discovered accidentally during a routine road improvement project, Yarmony Pit House soon changed the previously held perception as to how far north Native Americans wintered.

Over 4,000 unscathed artifacts were unearthed during the excavation headed by Michael D. Metcalf. To preserve the Yaromony site, archaeologist’s have back-filled the area with sand. This not only preserves the integrity of the pit houses, but will also allow future archaeologist’s to re-explore this area without further contamination or erosion to the site. Metcalf would like to expand the survey to include more of Colorado’s River valleys with the intent of discovering more Native American Pit Houses, which will in turn fill in some of the gaps in our Colorful Colorado history!
