The Milky Way


One thing about coming to the campground is that it allows me to reconnect with something a little more primitive.

As I stood in the darkness, my ears adjusted to noises not of the city. There were no sirens, no traffic, no neighbors with surround sound blasting at me. Instead there was a cacophony of frogs, croaking their way through the night. A coyote howl from somewhere far away and a second responding from somewhere closer. Unseen nocturnal creatures rustled grasses as they skirted through the dark.
And stars… More stars than I can see in town. Eve the Milky Way is visible here.
It all makes me think, wonder, and take a moment to be awe-struck by the beauty I can and cannot see.
