// I had never been here before, and swung by the ranger station to orient myself and try and get some information. “That's the Temple of the Moon” the Ranger said as he pointed his hand over his shoulder at a picture hanging on the wall as I asked him about rock formations to place in front of the Milky Way. “But the moon doesn’t set until 4:03, so you won’t have any stars until then which may be a problem”. The road (not marked in the dark) took a little while and 3 passes to find before I finally made my way the twenty something miles down the dusty dirt road. I finally arrived at 1:30 in the morning and grabbed some much needed sleep in the truck, parked at the base of this formation. When I woke, the Milky Way had just come into view as the moon set behind the ridge and put on an amazing show until dawn. As they say, "Sometimes it’s better to be lucky than good."
