Celebrate the Sun Full Moon Walk

A deer friend joined us for the May moon walk.

Celebrate the Sun Full Moon Walk

at Sacred Coldwater Springs

Thursday, June 24, 2021

Gather at the park entrance, 7 pm

Park at pay meters on the Hwy 55 access road via credit card


The earliest sunrises of the year here, occur at 5:26 am for the 12 days beginning June 10 through June 21. In case you’re not awake for those solar events, the latest sunsets are at 9:04 pm on eight days from June 23 through June 30. Our moon is a reflection of our sun.


June is strawberry month. My mother used to tell how her father ate fresh strawberries for the 3-week strawberry season for every meal, every day, and broke out in some kind of red (of course) strawberry rash.


Give a blessing, get a blessing. Blessings travel in circles.
