The place was positively glowing as the sun moved into the western sky. The nearby hills were afire with red awaiting sunset when all the special effects would take place. The cloudless sky led to a less than spectacular sunset but we were left us with a glowing sky.
I wasn't even aware that a lunar eclipse was due for the first night that we were at Goosenecks. It was to be a busy night living on the edge.
There were about 20 rigs spread along the canyon edge awaiting a sacred event under a clear night sky full of stars. You were able to choose where to park your rig. There are no assigned spots.... just pick your spot as close or as far from the edge as you dare.
The first night we were at Goosenecks we parked a ways from the edge... but moved closer the second night when I noticed all the rocks and bluffs were still in place by morning.
We set up our new home with enough time before dark to go for a walk out to the point.
As we turned to return to camp, the moon emerged into the pink sky.
Without the light from the moon it was night sky was shrouded in darkness leaving only a slight glow in the moons place . How blessed we were to be in a place with out light other than from the stars
In a place so filled with cosmic energy, people seemed to look for ways to make connection with the universe beyond their understanding.
