The stars at night are big and bright.....

Colorado.

I've never before seen such a gorgeous night sky. It truly takes my breath away.

Having lived in big cities for the past few years, and before that still in very residential areas with lots of big street lights, I was used to sometimes seeing a handful, if that, of stars.

When I walk Winnie in the evenings after the kids are in bed, my eyes are somewhat blinded by the lights in our parking lot. Then, I pass out of the lot, and head west. The hill that hides our development also hides the lights. Street lights are practically taboo here. Then I pass that hill, my eyes adjust and.....there they are.

Amazing.
