Ok, so, just back from the stunning GC, loved it. I didn’t get a chance to see the night sky, that’s June 2020, but I had an awesome time. I stayed in Williams AZ and simply drove up to the canyon. Now I’ve book four nights in June 2020 and will stay in Williams. It’s so much more affordable, ok a drive, buts it’s a lovely drive and....I get to eat at the totally amazing Pine Country Restaurant.

I am booking my stay for next year. I’m going to stay at Yavapai Lodge and just be....no phone, no watch, no plans other than look at the stars and night. I’m so going by myself. I feel the need to spend time apart from the normality of my life, get back to being just another man walking this planet in awe.
