Last weekend we drove to southern Illinois in search of dark skies to watch the Perseids meteor shower. We laid out on the rocks for about an hour soaking in the show. Before heading back to our tent, I took this self portrait looking at the Milky Way core. What a great memory for both me and my family.
It took two trips out to these falls to get this picture. The first time, I was joined by about 40 other people. The second, on a Sunday morning, 0. Can't beat having a beautiful hike and waterfall all to yourself.
