The Full Wolf Moon

There was a full moon on Wednesday (photos above and below were taken in Bent Tree). The December and January full moons were back-to-back “mini-moons”. Click here for more information.

The January full moon is known as the “Wolf Moon”. There may not be wolves in Bent Tree, but there are some healthy looking coyotes that can be heard howling at night. Several coyote photos (taken in Bent Tree by trail cameras) have been posted on this website in the past. The most unusual one was of a black coyote.

The Full Cold Moon

The final full moon of 2013 occurred at 4:28 a.m. today. The December full moon is known as the “Full Cold Moon” or the “Long Nights Moon”. Bent Tree’s annual Silent Moonlight Walk is scheduled to begin at 6:30 p.m. at the 19th Hole, and will take hikers around the back 9 on the golf course. This month’s full moon was the “smallest” of the year. Click here for more information.
