The day started with me in St Louis. My girlfriend took me to the airport at 4:00am so I'd be there plenty early for my 6:15 am flight.
By 6:00 the sun was just up over the horizon with beautiful partly cloudy skies.
My trip would begin shortly taking Frontier Airlines and stopping over in Denver, Colorodo.
The plane had a duck on the tail. Soon I was off. It was goodbye St. Louis,
And hello Denver.
After an abbreviated 45 mintues off a plane, I was off again. Leaving Denver our path took us across the Rocky Mountains:
And the Grand Canyon:
Finally, after nearly 6 hours, I was at my destination city of San Diego. After a short cab ride, I arrived at my room.
So what's a tired astronomer to do now? Well look what just happens to be right outside my window:
I think it's time for a nice cool dip and an even nicer nap.
