13 Nov Stargazing and ticks
Hood River is surely a gorgeous place. In the early mornings, you can see the beautiful stars and planets. At night, you can’t escape the amazing sound of the train passing through town. This month, I volunteered to be a part of the Fun Committee for G&A’s Hood River In-Person Training event. The Fun Committee was tasked with planning fun, but serious training for the R6 G&A staff members, as well as the logistics and team building-exercises. One of those team building exercises was a six-am walk. Now, I’m not a morning person, but it is something I’m willing to do again. There’s just something about the crisp, cold weather, and being up before the sun is. I’ve lived in the city my whole life, and if you want to stargaze, you would have to drive out of town. In Hood River, the sky was just littered with stars, we saw Venus, Orion’s belt, and the Little Dipper. It was truly a beautiful sight in the early morning. Besides waking up early, and having a scare with ticks, the trip went by so fast.
