Camping by the Light of the Moon

     Camping in the BWCA is always a treat but especially when there’s a full moon.  I love to see the reflection of the moon on the water.  It’s fun to paddle by the light of the moon too.  The month of June is known as the Strawberry Moon.  Our wild strawberries are almost ripe!

From the web… The month of June’s full Moon’s name is the Full Strawberry Moon. June’s Full Strawberry Moon got its name because the Algonquin tribes knew it as a signal to gather ripening fruit.  It was often known as the Full Rose Moon in Europe (where strawberries aren’t native).
