I love the twinkle of Las Vegas at night, but at a certain point, I wanted a different kind of sparkle. We rented a car and headed out to the desert for some star watching. To kill time before the sun went down, we drove through Red Rock Canyon and marveled at a silence so stifling that it made me dizzy. As it got darker [and wonderfully cooler], we were treated to coyotes barking and bats zipping overhead, and we made our way out into the darkening nothingness to spot the Milky Way. After a weekend of fake cities and constant noise, it was a relief to spend a couple of hours in a muffled landscape.
|Found the mountains! Good job!|
|Far away Vegas.|
