Walking With Sadie

Bayfield, CO - Sunday night, at 11:53 P.M. EST (9:53 MST), was the FULL WOLF MOON! January is the month of the Full Wolf Moon. It appeared when wolves howled in hunger outside the villages. It is also known as the Old Moon. To some Native American tribes, this was the Snow Moon, but most applied that name to the next full Moon, in February.
