The last two years we have added weekend camping trips to our stargazing repertoire. Cherry Springs State Park in Pennsylvania has proven to be a perfect spot for us, in stargazing, in natural sites and in local charm with it's string of neighboring state parks and small lumber towns down and around Rte 66. This last weekend was our third trip into the wonderfully dark zoned heart of PA and I would have to say the best in weather (but not in bugs!!!). Jim is still working on his astro photos, but I do have one from a trip back. The Orion Nebula.
Here are a few other more earth bound pics to illustrate our experience...
Waiting for night to fall on the astronomy field.
Morning trip to PA's Grand Canyon. Popular amongst sightseers, hikers, bikers, horse and canoe tours.
