Joshua Tree, CA, USA

Desert Dreams


It's been a longtime dream of mine to witness the beauty of the Milky Way, which is impossible in most places that humans dwell because of the light pollution. It's incredible to think that people used to observe this wonder all the time, but for the past few centuries it has been hidden to those of us who live our lives in urban/suburban areas. The best time to see it is during the summer, when it's directly overhead, so we headed out to the desert this past Memorial Day weekend and were lucky enough to catch a glimpse of it before the moon rose. I can't even remember the last time I saw the stars sparkle so brightly and it made me feel tiny and insignificant for sure. At the same time, the beauty of the desert and the sky above us reminded me what a gift it is to be alive on Earth.

I definitely want to practice my astrophotography more, so hopefully another trip to Joshua Tree soon is in the stars (hehe)!

  10. Amazing, that must be such an experience! I get excited when I go out of the city enough to see a few stars, so I can't even begin to imagine how awe-inspiring a sky full of stars is.
