Day 14: Camping and Stargazing
Sleeping in a prairie full of rocks, I laid there in my tent, looking up to the stars. Today we had gone camping in your average "middle of nowhere". We carried our hiking bags and regular backpacks to the long distance of that "middle of nowhere". This place had everything natural around it; a body of water around it, stars, and nothing modern of it. We didn't even have a close restroom next to us, though there was one across the bridge. Even though the weather was the most out-of-the-ordinary, I think that the nature surrounding us was nothing compared to what I have seen before. And at night, we could see every single one of the stars. Hinting blue and red, the stars aligned together to the point I could connect the dots. More than that, we saw a satellite pass through the night sky, its hue blooming gray. The sky was cloudless, leaving everything else just pitch black.
