Did you see the meteor showers? From our camp at the lakes edge, we watched the sky which was screaming with stars high up in the mountains. I haven't seen the milky way in a few years now, and it was spectacular. We let the campfire die down, and before the moon rose to light up the sky too much to see the stars, we watched the meteors stream across the sky. One was so big it looked like a comet, with a shimmering tail that never ended until it had streaked across the entire sky. It was lovely.
