Things to add to the trip

Having spent the last few days in Lost River National Park I've found something I need to make sure I add plenty of to my trip - darkness.

Two evenings sat outside in the pitch black staring at the sky and a field of stars. Being able to see the arm of the Milkyway is really very cool (not a reference to the freezing cold conditions) and something that I'd forgotten just how nice it is. If nothing else it made me remember being in the Namibian Desert and falling asleep out under the stars.  Heaven.
