I remember camping with my parents as a child in Maine. It would be pitch black. My brother and I would be laying in the grass looking up at the beautiful star filled sky.
We had never seen a night sky so filled with dotted lights.
Many years later, on trips to Wyoming to visit my husband's family.... Rich and I would go for walks at night so that I could see the light filled sky.
It is breathe-taking to stand in the quiet of the black night and look toward the heavens.... filled with an infinite number of sparkling stars. The moon looks so close here. I feel like I could just reach out and touch it sometimes. It is the biggest moon I have ever seen.
I am a transplanted Boston-suburbia city girl, now, in the wilds of northern Wyoming. I marvel at the richness of the nature that surrounds me! I'm like a little girl with wide-open eyes standing in awe at a the landscape that layes before me.
