More traffic chaos

                               In Wyoming....

 

 

At night in this part of the West the stars, as I had seen them in Wyoming, were as big as Roman Candles and as lonely as the Prince who’s lost his ancestral home and journeys across the spaces trying to find it again, and knows he never will.

~ Jack Kerouac

You're presenting my lovely home state well, Frank! Thank you!
(I hope not too many people see this! We don't want anymore moving in... er, we can't fit anymore in... um...)
Frank L Croston.: Thank you M'am. It would be a squeeze....

Great write up here, Frank and maybe you should phone home that you might be in a traffic jam after seeing this picture.
This scene also could be the start of a movie.....
Frank L Croston.: I'm sure I've seen that movie...
Oh, wow, Frank. Perfect quote for this expanse.
Frank L Croston.: Elizabeth is in charge of quotes smile It does fit though.
Impressionnante immensité .. la photo est très belle
Bonne journée
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Claudine.

I imagine the stars look great here with low light pollution, just as I witnessed in the Adirondacks.
Frank L Croston.: I'm sure they would, Andrew. We live in a dark sky city, night skies are amazing.
Wait till you get back to Fleetwood and drive into Blackpool.
Frank L Croston.: Why would I want to do that....smile
Looks like the sort of place Alan Rolfe would like...no great unwashed
Frank L Croston.: Alan would be happy here, for sure, Bill.

Well, if Wyoming is always as busy as this, I will have to find somewhere else to go. At least there are green fields; I've forgotten what those look like.
Frank L Croston.: Crowds are a problem, Alan....smile Endless green fields.

If ever fate moves me to the US, it is Wyoming where I would want to end up. Early in January this year I travelled through a part of our country, that almost exactly look like this.
Frank L Croston.: It is very beautiful, but the winter weather is bad I believe.
Open countryside doesn't come much better than that.
Frank L Croston.: Wide open, Brian, this was close to the overland trail that wagon trains took.
Not a sheep or cow in sight, Frank. I take it that this is not farming country.
Frank L Croston.: I think its cattle country, but we didn't see many, lots of Antelope...
was there room to pass
Frank L Croston.: There is no-one to pass, Martin...smile
Stars in the wilderness is one of the benefits of the rural life.,
Frank L Croston.: Indeed it is, Flagstaff was the first dark sky city.

You always have such amazing skies out there!!! I like the leading curvy line here. Too bad about the rush traffic : )
Frank L Croston.: One thing I loved about Wyoming was the skies, we have good ones in the southwest also. Thanks Bonnie.
Kerouac quote is fine, and I relish this view.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Larry.
