Blake and I had been talking and talking about going to Great Basin National Park. Every time we passed the sign on our way South we talked about crossing Great Basin off out list. The past couple years, star photography has become my favorite hobby. We keep track of the moon cycle and plan trips based on how large the moon is; we are nerds, I know! Last weekend was a new moon; which means we were going camping, so we could do some stargazing! Since we had been talking about Great Basin for so long we decided to finally make it happen.
