This time I was looking forward to it. For at 0430hr I was treated to the most magnificent night sky of the trip, zero light pollution making it all the more amazing, If it wasn’t for the cold I,d of been there until breakfast.
Departing quickly so as to get to a lower altitude, just to get some warmth took longer than expected, flagging down a RV to get water on our way to …
