It was not dark when we arrived.
But as we came out of the restaurant and inside area, the full moon was rising.
I nominate this as best use of river birch. Shining colored lights up the bark makes it look magical.
And on to the Way of Lights.
Photos of light displays never do justice to the experience.
What makes the Way of Lights special is that it tells the Christmas story.
This is what a photo looks like while driving through a tunnel.
The outdoor amphitheater was set up like a beautiful Christmas card with Mary as Our Lady of Snows and the Peace on Earth message. That is way in the distance from the car.
There was a little humor.
And the shepherds were keeping watch by night.
Not a good photo, but the Lourdes Grotto was set up with a manger scene.
After we drove through we went to the petting zoo and to see the camel rides.
This little baby camel was very sweet.
And this is a yak. A baby yak.
The last one is a "white" or light colored bison calf.
We really enjoyed the whole Way of Lights at Our Lady of the Snows from dinner to shopping to the lights to the zoo at the end.
