Montana isn’t the only place with a “big sky.”
When I went to college in Colorado, I remember having to be pulled from the window one early morning of orientation. I was just in awe of how BIG the sky looked. Big and blue. Of course, my native Southern California has sky, too- but it felt clearer and unobstructed and somehow a lot more vast in the mountains. I felt littler, just a part of something bigger. My perspective in the world was altered going forward.
After spending multiple days under the sun, moon, and stars of Montana, I came home to the first afternoon thunderstorms in Utah this week. My eyes have been skyward for the last couple of days.
I like knowing I’m still as in awe of the big old sky as I was the first time it struck me, 19 years ago.
Do you remember to look UP?
I do this a lot… more at night because I know that my parents and family are looking at the same stars as me. That was something my grandmother and me always did. Looked at the same stars at night and wished each other goodnight. 🙂
Btw are you on FB???
That is so sweet! There are a lot more stars out here than in So. Cal, too… at least you can see them more often!
Yes. I love star gazing and L loves it just as much. I can’t wait to go camping with the kids so we can just listen and stare 🙂
the monsoon is a giant HUG this week, such a feeling of relief from the relentless sun and heat. all of Colorado is exhaling.
It was ugly there for awhile. Hoping the rain comes daily now!
I basically live UP. My apartment on the 42nd floor! 🙂
I bet you have very cool views!
This is my part of my “daily sky” project:
I used to take a photo of the same area, at around the same time, every night. This is what we see and I’d gladly give it away for the view you have.
Beautiful, breathtaking photos:) I am looking everywhere!
The sky was amazing on those days!
