Daily Postcard: Full Beaver Moon Visible Early Today

Daily Postcard: View of the Full Beaver Moon captured on camera early this morning from White Rock. November’s full moon was called the Full Beaver Moon by both the Algonquin tribes and colonial Americans. The Native Americans used the monthly moons and nature’s signs as a sort of calendar to track the seasons. Why this name? Back then, November was the month to set beaver traps before the swamps froze, to ensure a supply of warm winter furs. The November full moon also was called the Full Frost Moon by other Native American tribes. Source: Photo by Nancy Ann Hibbs
