What One Can Find In The Middle of Nowhere

A copper colored moon looking like a broken plate out on the eastern plains, rising through the dust at the edge of the world.

Stars sprinkled through the Milky Way, each brighter than the next. Two planets and an airplane in the darkness of the night.

Oddly enough there were more cars on the sidelines than I thought there might be. There were fewer cars on the road than I thought there would be either. So the traffic wasn't that bad and for all that we went through two cities during rush hour, there was only one accident in Denver that we had to stop and go for.

We're between Colorado and New Mexico and the lack of lights has been beautiful. Four hours down the road, four to go... and a nice little Super 8 with nice high speed Internet in between. It's a nice stop.

There's also $2.79 gas down here, and diesal for less than $4 a gallon, it's pretty astonishing to find.

Yeah I was going to mention to you that no one really "hacked" into your account and that its just a little bug that LJ has. I had the same issue a while back, no biggie!

Glad your drive is going so well! Luvs!
Thank you! I appreciate the help when something like that happens, sorry to be all alarmest... but I probably should be changing my passwords anyway. (laughs)

Thanks!! It's been a little grueling but fun.
New Mexico is fantastic for dark skies! I wish we were there too (with our 8 in schmidt/cassegrain telescope).
Oh, it's so *true*. Oooo... a *real* telescope. Though we've been to visit the very large array down here of radio telescopes and that's been very good.

We managed to get down to 2.95 for gas.

Theupper description sounded rather beautiful. You have a way with words.
What a lovely image you painted of the desert sky. Makes me miss the night sky I used to stare at for hours on business trips to Tuscon. :D
