Watching the stars all night was a thrill during an exciting meteor shower in August. It was amazing to see a star streak across the sky and disappear in a blaze of white. Sometimes there were several falling stars within a minute. Robin led us in the song, "Catch a falling star and put it in your pocket." Pictured here are the star gazers awake at 4:00 a.m. Even though everyone was so tired, the next day was spent gathering blackberries at Tonto Creek and putting them in a basket. The little ones frolicked in the pools of water which were abundant in the creek. Later Beth made a yummy blackberry breakfast cake for dessert after which the group laid out under the stars again for another all nighter. Fatigue won over and the group all fell asleep before midnight. Early morning brought far away sounds of coyotes, but no sign of elk.
