  1. 7,200 feet. Pshaw! The Park Department could do that here at 12,000 feet up on Trail Ridge Road. But it’s not Yosemite. Recent news stories about the hanta virus there … just made me want to go more. Even in this video, in some of the daytime shots, I was peering at the scenery in the background. Yosemite is on my bucket list — but Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon are a lot closer and therefore higher on the list.

    Thanks for sharing this, though. You know I love this kind of stuff.

    • Oh I absolutely do love them PT, in part at least because I may never see places like this in person. Of course, with things like that hanta virus… 😮

      BTW, I think the video I just reblogged from Metousiosis is even better! 😀

  2. I count myself so lucky that I live in an area that’s rural enough to have a “dark sky”. (Although I can still see the lights from “civilization” — i.e., suburbia — radiating even though they’re @ 30 miles away.) I don’t feel small at all looking at that sky — or rather, maybe I feel reassured by my smallness, in that I feel like I belong to something big.

    • Wow, I’m jealous. Yes, I’ve heard about the virus thing. Isn’t that virus thing scary? Who’d have thought there’d be something there worse than the other humans?!?! 😆
