February Microadventure

August’s Microadventure

As if yet we haven’t sent a proper night on a open exposed hill top, August was the month to do it, and specifically early August as there would be a good change to see some early Perseid meteors. We trekked up the hill, it was warm, windless and crystal clear in the heavens above… Read more »
