Yep. It was what I'd hoped it would be. Beautiful light - esp. between 5 and 6 am. They may show up too dark on the web, but we'll give it a shot! This one was at 6 am:
You can see just a little bit of white snow. Here's a 7 am shot. That hour in between was fun to watch.
As it turns out, the spot I picked, did have a great view, but turned out to be not so hot otherwise…People were cutting through the back of it to go to the restrooms, there as a dumpster nearby and they would slam the lid, I was at an intersection, and there was a spot for people to park their cars to go walk the trail across from me… So I took a walk with Theo to see where we might move the next night… I screwed up my courage and started to chat with the people at the end who had the primo spot. They were leaving at 6:30 the next morning! My time of day! So I moved there this am. Its terrific. Right on the river, private and still views. Think I'll hang out awhile. Here's the view from MY spot:
Oh yeah , another thing. Last night the bathroom lights were on all night! How's that for crazy? Out here with one of the darkest skies...I think I'll make a $20 donation to the Park and suggest they buy some timers for the bathroom light switches! I saw the Milky Way anyway. Clear night and no moon. T likes the new spot…here he is contemplating a dip in that river...
