Nightfall Calls.

Today is the begining of the 20th annual Nightfall astronomical event in Borrego Springs, Ca.  I have packed all my goodies in the RV and I am taking off for the only official dark sky certified city in California.

I will be staying at the Palm Canyon Resort Hotel and RV park.  They have just renovated the entire place and it promises to be a fantastic upgrade.  I recommend that if you are traveling to Borrego Springs to view the desert flowers in bloom (February-March) that you stay here.  It is right next door to the state park where you can view the flowers in all their glory.  It is also near a horse riding outfit and near the tennis courts for the more outdoorsy types.  So check it out.

I will (hopefully) be taking a three day time lapse of the event from my RV spot and if everything goes well, I will post photos for you tomorrow and next week.  If you are coming to the event, I’ll see you there.
