We've had such a fun weekend! We started out Thursday evening up at Great Basin National Park for the ranger talent show.
Lots of people came to see a variety of entertainers.
Dark Sky Ranger Carolyn played a couple beautiful pieces.
Bryan had Isaac dance along.
Isaac was entranced with the show.
Isaac and Desert Girl found another friend.
Desert Boy couldn't resist taking the mike for "Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star."
It was a really fun evening! Many folks attended the Astronomy Festival events, and there were some really impressive telescopes to look through! The festival will be held again in July 2013, so if you missed this one and you like dark skies and awesome viewing, be sure to mark your calendars for next year!
Hi! I'm Gretchen, an ecologist, rancher's wife, mother, writer, and dreamer. I've lived and worked in three of the four North American deserts and visited the fourth. This blog is about what it's like to live in the rural high desert on a ranch, spending lots of time outdoors with kids, and our journey to live more sustainably. To learn more about us, click here.
