Off the Grid and in the Stars

(2021-05-13 Travel Journal: Tucannon River RV Park, near Palouse Falls, WA.)

When you read this, Judy and I will have rejoined the internet-connected world, but as I type this on my computer, no web or phone signals arrive or leave our campsite in the Palouse hills of western Washington. However, we’re overlain by a sky gloriously full of stars.

Last night, I lay in the quiet of the dark night and easily saw the Big Dipper, Arcturus, Spica, the Corona Borealis, Vega, and Leo. There were many more, and I will learn their names during our cross-country exploration of dark-night places, but those were the campsite friends I recognized to whom I said hello last night.
