We just got in from 3 really fun, and productive days along the White Rim Trail, so I thought I would do a quick post. The star tails are the result of a 25 minute long exposure – I lit our tent with my flash light, and then stumbled out of the scene in nearly total darkness.
I really enjoyed sitting there and watching the stars and seeing shooting stars. It has been awhile since I have spent a night under the stars – I do most of my camping and backpacking during the Alaska summer, a time stars don’t show well, if at all.
Here is a lot more information about camping on the White Rim Trail in Canyonlands.
