My husband, dogs, and I had a lovely trip to Colorado back in July. A few mechanical problems did not detract from the beauty of the mountains. Comet and Zorro had a blast, being with their humans 24/7 and exploring the mountains by nose. And the cabers (my word for the fallen Aspen we use for making our tree houses) were plentiful. What more could a gal ask for?

My photographer husband experimented with star shots at night, with several spectacular pictures as the result. Did you know that 1/3 of people in the world and 80% of Americans haven’t seen the Milky Way as a result of light pollution?
