I remember about 25+ years ago when I was newly separated (divorce pending) from my first husband I had a serious itch to get out of dodge.
I called my sister and asked if it would be okay if I came and visited her for a week or so. She said no problem, gave me directions, etc.
Sis lived in Leadville, Colorado (which is the highest elevated city in the US -- over 10,000 ft. above sea level.) She was rooming with a friend who had built a log cabin on the outskirts of town.
Long story short, while the cabin was primitive (no electricity unless you turned on the generator) it was situated so that the master bedroom had a window view of the mountain landscape. The view was awesome.
The thing that I really wish I could see again? Is the night sky.
I never saw stars like that before or since. There was absolutely no intrusion of surrounding city lights, it was a completely black sky with the shining stars. The stars seemed to be so bright and big! So close that you could reach out and grab them.
I was in awe of that night sky.
Before I die, I would like to take my DDs on a trip to Leadville, CO just so that they could see the the incredible-reach-out-and-grab-them stars.
What about you? What awesome thing would you like to see again?
