Cloudy skies

We sure saw some stars on our last trip out of Mineral King.  There was no moon at all, and the night time sky simply glowed with stars.

At one point P woke up briefly and looked out the mesh of the tent and thought: "Aw nuts, it's clouding over." That was right before he realized that the cloud he was seeing was the Milk Way, bright enough to fool him.

Those were some beautiful dark skies...
