I'm kinda slow getting pics up, but here are a few from our weekend in Caprock Canyons. Our friends are in the 30-something-foot motor home in the first shot.
We got an escort as we left the park to come home. I wonder if one of these is the one that left us a present in our spot before our arrival.
The first night, I was even able to get some decent galaxy photos. The one on the lower left is the one that had a supernova going off last year in January.
The weather was beautiful, and I even survived a 6 mile hike with our Marine veteran friend. He has 6 years on me, and I wasn't about to let him show me up!
Here is a video of some of the scenery along the trail.
Canyon Rim Trail
It was beautiful weather, and a professor emeritus from our workplace gave an astronomy/constellation presentation while we were there, and had a couple of his large telescopes for viewing. Caprock Canyons is incidentally the 2nd darkest spot in Texas for astronomy. Some of the people there asked him some pretty........."interesting?".....questions - stuff that any first grader should know.
I found myself wondering where they went to school. <G>
Great weekend, great weather, and very little wind until we went to leave Sunday morning. All there is to do now is......MORE!
