OHHHH Cheryl, I've never been to Death Valley but the star gazing alone would be worth the trip! CG, you're husband would love it there! Watch this viedo.
Enjoy your great trip Cheryl!!

Kayelle, that is a great idea! I must admit the thought of stargazing never crossed my mind when I looked at the resort's page. Shame on me. Maybe Himself and I should consider a road trip. :

FWIW, we were lucky to build our house here in what is know as The Last Green Valley. Considering that we aren't all that far from Boston, Providence, or Hartford, we have rather dark skies in our neck of the woods. I was able to clearly spot the Milky Way more times in one week when we first moved here than I could see in a year back home.

*********************

I'm currently nursing a headache. The wind has been blowing hard all evening, so that might be the cause. Or maybe it was the 3 hours or so of non-stop TV viewing while mini-binging on the Rizzoli & Isles discs we got from the library. OR it could be that my BAC levels dropped too low - the headache seems to be going away as I sip on some red wine. Then again, the wind has quit too.

Thank you, GG, Kay, and CG!

GG, not only is there "Death..." and "Furnace..." names, there's also areas with the name "Devil" this or that.

Kay, you and the SC should get out to Death Valley sometime. It really is a spectacular place, despite the name and being completely out in the middle of nowhere. We actually will be out under the amazing stars, as the reason we're going is because it's Death Valley Days Thursday through this Sunday, and my SIL and his family are one of the bands playing for the visitors' musical enjoyment. He and his family have been playing their music together for decades, and the concerts are being held up through late evening under the stars on a bandstand. We won't watch ALL of the bands, but hope to see several.

CG, I'm hoping that at least one of us will be able to get a good shot of the Milky Way - it's incredible, isn't it??!

I'm in shock over what is happening in Paris. Such a devastating situation over there. I'm praying for peace to be restored there, and for safety for our own country and peoples. Heaven help us all.

What are you doing?

It made me sick. Friends recently got back from a tour of Europe, and absolutely adored Paris.

Yeah, the whole situation in Paris is freaking me out. I spent too much time following it. Very sad.
