Humans are a nomadic species, but it feels like more and more we’re spending less time actually exploring. So, what better way to take a break from life indoors than by taking a trip to see something that’s absolutely infinite? To go from staring at an area measured in square feet to one measured in lightyears.
That’s what this group of friends is thinking, anyway. They’re setting out for a road trip through Utah to stargaze in one of the country’s Dark Sky Places, located near Canyonlands National Park. A place with the least amount of light pollution so you can see the most star-filled sky.
Their long drive sounds like a herculean effort at first, especially given the remote location. But they have things like canyons, wildlife, and…the effects of drinking a gallon of iced tea to distract them from the distance involved in visiting a Dark Sky Place.
When you’re ready to get out there and explore like this group of friends, we’ll see you wherever you want to go. Even if you go off the grid, you’re still on ours.
