Skating Under the Harvest Moon

Night comes sooner now I am saddened to see summer go. We skate Friday nights for fun and friends yes, and to stay accustomed to skating through the winters darkness. This night was one of those cool magical moments when summer gives over to fall I could skate all night if I could only keep my legs under me at such a late hour. The harvest moon rising over the Wasatch darkened by western wild fires. The old man is much more visible it is like an old friend peeking over the Wasatch saying get those ski's ready.

We had a great group talented new skater Cheyenne brought along with her mom a welcome family atmosphere to the skate. Smiles all around with a perfect September night except the blustery windy ending with a push back to the park. Where is that ski wax?
