Look What I Found!!!

I was wandering around the North Rim in the Mohican Forest the other day and came across this site on the cliffs overlooking the river

Beyond the edge of the rocks in the lower left corner of the picture, the cliff drops off at least another 100 feet down to the river. The rock outcropping on the right of the picture rises upwards another 30 feet or so to the top of the hill. There is only one way onto this “ledge” and that is from the point of view of this picture. (Assuming you aren’t into climbing the cliff.)

I have been looking for a place to check out the stars and this could be it. The lights of Loudonville will be behind the outcropping, and the lights of Columbus will be eighty miles away and to the left.           So- – – – , , ,

if I camp here during a “new moon”, don’t have a campfire, sit with my back against the tree to the right, and look to the south-west, I should see a lot of stars.

The only issue will be I’ll need to wait until the leaves are off the trees. So now picture this same area with no leaves on the trees, a cold wind blowing in from the south-west, and a night in November.

I probably will need to dress a little warmer,
