Two Medicine

 


Two morning images of Sinopah mountain. 

The first morning was quite windy, the next smooth as can be with mist rising. 

What a difference a day makes.




Camping here I had a unique experience: 

Star gazing with my friend and a camp neighbor I noticed light glowing over the crest of a mountain. We were on the eastern side of the Rocky Mountains. No cities nearby, only small towns, meaning no big lights. “What is that I asked?”. Many man-made items were the guess by one of us. The glow grew larger and to my eyes softly green. The light began to pulse (UFO’s came to mind).

 A moment later a brilliant star appeared over the mountains ridge. My first consciously observed star-rise! So beautiful. Seemed magical and profound. Often it is day… then it is night and there are stars. To see a star rise felt holy.



This area is named Two Medicine and is holy to the native people, the Blackfeet tribe and to so many other people including me. Though I have experienced that there are spots on earth that have more energy than others. All nature is holy to me. It was beautiful to spend two sunsets, two sunrises and a star-rise there.

Lovely day and beyond to you.

  1. What a magical experience. I can't begin to imagine (or maybe only imagine)the joy of seeing that.

    1. It really was magical. Last night sitting outside with friends, my eyes scanned nearby mountains looking for glowing light. I suppose the timing has to be just right.

  2. Dear Tammie, Thanks for sharing this extraordinary experience -- and your extraordinary photographs -- with us. One of my favorite things to do in the summer around here is sit outside from dusk to twilight to nightfall, listening to the changes in birdsong, occasionally catching a deer sidling along our driveway, and, best of all, watching the stars slowly appear in the sky. Around here, in the summertime, the first to appear is Altair, and then Vega, and last of Deneb: the summer triangle. It does feel like magic. So glad you had this experience. Best, anno (sorry about posting anonymously; can't seem to sign in with my google ID)

  5. What a pretty mountain and area, Tammie Lee. I love that photo of the mountain's reflection in the water. Very close to where I live there is Mount Shasta. I don't know if you're familiar with it, but it is a sacred mountain to the Native Americans. Nel has climbed to the top twice, and had a very memorable experience. These mountains have been here for thousands of years, so I can see why they are special and appreciated by the people who have lived there for so many years.
