The orange-red rock particularly glows at sunset when the sun casts golden light on it.
I loved wandering the hills of rock so much that I wanted to go back for sunset every day! Nature's beauty awes me.
After sunset, we'd wander back to K's Rock, where we'd watch the daylight fade to dusk, while the sandstone glowed red in the last sun rays of the afternoon.
Sunset was very early by the end of our trip - around 5 PM. That's a drag when camping because it's a long night to pass in a sleeping bag. However, the stars kept me entertained after dark. The Milky Way was visible behind K's Rock, and sometimes the rock was lit up by the moon!
Then, over the course of many hours of darkness, the Milky Way would rotate around the North Star just like all the other stars do.
I set up my camera to automatically capture the sky all night long. When I got home, I condensed 14 hours of darkness and stars into a 35 second video so that you could see the Milky Way's movement throughout the night. Here's the very short video. Be sure to notice how the moon lit up K's Rock at the start but then the moon set, leaving K's Rock dark for the rest of the video.
We are joining the LLB Gang for Nature Friday!
