Madras camping

August 20, 2017

Our campsite on the baseball field. (Click on photos to enlarge.)

The students cooking their dinner.

Here’s our campsite at the Madras high school. We are here with the Flagstaff Arts and Leadership Academy (FALA), a great group of high school students led by Rich Krueger, the astronomy and physics teacher. We circled our tents and have a nice space, with a few canopies making shade. The students are in charge of the cooking, so they gather at meal times and prepare the food. Our group of seven includes my friend Rush and his brother, Wally, who brought the usual truckload of camping and cooking supplies.

Today Aubrey, myself and Peter, a San Francisco photographer, went out to test our equipment on the football field. I was having problems with some remote triggers but will figure out a solution. James, one of the students, is assisting me and that’s a big help. We saw high clouds come in off and on during the day so that’s a worry although people are pretty confident the sky will be clear tomorrow.

The star party is this evening, and it’s an early morning tomorrow.
