Taking Stargazing to New Heights

by Steph Sweeney

As we slowly made our way up the road full of dirt and rocks, the mountain felt different. It took me a few minutes to recognize some of my favorite trails and I thought ‘huh, who knew all this green grass was here?’ and ‘whoa, that looks way steeper without snow.’ While the winter is tranquil in its own way, there’s something even more peaceful now. I chalk it up to the people - or lack thereof - and all the wildlife we saw along the way.
