A full moon over the ranch illuminates the cabins on an early morning before guests wake up. The friendly, professional staff are up early fixing a hearty breakfast, packing lunches and getting the fishing gear and vehicles ready for another successful day of fishing.
An added bonus for Upper Canyon Outfitter guests was faint views of the Perseid meteor shower, one of the brighter meteor showers of the year. The bright, full moon prevented a good look but it was still exciting and everyone was talking about it. the meteor Shower occurs every August, peaking around August 9-13. Consisting of tiny space debris from the comet Swift-Tuttle, the Perseids are named after the constellation, Perseus. This is because, their radiant or the direction of which the shower seems to come from lies in the same direction as Perseus. The constellation lies in the north-eastern part of the sky.combined with a full moon perfectly poised over the lodge. (Astronomical info from timeanddate.com)
