Later in the evening, I attempted a bit of night sky photography.
I wasn't really happy with the way any of them turned out, but I will share it anyway

Let me know about that event next year so that I can take off from work and attend it. If I know far enough ahead of time I can make some arrangements to get loose.

I suppose one can spend the evening on Grandfather Mountain by hiking up via the access trails outside of the hideous park facilities. I may just go that route to see what it's like up there during an entire turning of the Earth.
