June 19, 1987: Star Party

Lots has happened in the 11 days since I last wrote. Another fire, a camp move, an overnighter on Sentinel Dome. Tomorrow we go to the climbing school in Tuolumne. Yeah!!

 
I’m starting to learn some astronomy. I’m reading Mark’s book Naked Eye Astronomy and last night a bunch of us went star gazing down at the Meadow. I can identify Ursa Major & Minor, Cassiopeia, Cygnus, the Summer Triangle, Lyra and Delphinus. I’d like to go back tonight and locate Draco, Cepheus, and Lacerta.

 
The camp here at Tuolumne resembles a Backcountry camp more than the one at Wawona. At least we don’t drive to work anymore.
