The night at Moro Rock in Sequoia National Park was quite beautiful. The light pollution from Visalia was rather intense. The distinctive Castle Rocks and Paradise Peak sat across the Middle Fork from Moro Rock, and beyond their ridgeline, Homers Nose and Maggie Mountain in the far distance appeared under the rising the Milky Way. As always, gazing at our own galaxy was a humbling experience, which made the solitude more profound. I literally kept this giant granite slab to myself. Not a single soul was around as I was lying there and counting the stars while thinking about where I had been, where I was and where I was headed in life… What else does one really need?
