In company of gorgeous Junipers
With my camera and tripod in hands, I sauntered off Mahogany Flat Campground, where I was camping. Found a clearing on the slope, but it was extremely windy. It would have made my stay unbearable without bundling myself up in my 15-degree sleeping bag. I held it tight while wondering how cold it would have been at the top of Telescope Peak, which was 3,000 feet higher. In the company of gorgeous Junipers, I sat down, pointed the camera at the Milky Way, risen over the mountain ridgeline, and pressed the remote shutter.
