I could have been warm and sleeping in that tent right there, but when the sky cleared I jumped at the chance to capture this photo.   

What are these streaks acoss the sky?  They're the trails of the fairies and pixies that inhabit the Enchanments.  Or maybe they were the larch tree needles blowing in the wind.  Either way, I thought they were cool.

Looking Northeast, the star almost directly above Prusik Peak is Capella, part of the Auriga constellation, third brightest star in the Northern sky.  And that patch of darker sky to the right of it is a bit of the Milky Way trailing off...  And a little further to the right is the infamous Pleiades cluster in the constellation Taurus, with millenia of lore surrounding it.
