LEAP OF THE NINERS

The ‘Niners’ of Island Pond on the evening of June 15th. They took their first leap into space from the ancient Douglas Fir snag on June 13th, 2016. The grasslands (and blooming prairie roses) received a sharp frost on June 14th, and the sun rose at its earliest on June 16th. In the Old World this is the Rose Moon, and in the New World its the Strawberry Moon, aligning with solstice for the first time since 1967.
