It’s another beautiful morning in Cottonwood. Kathryn and I have had our first cups of coffee, and Kathryn is busy taking photos of the crescent moon. The first signs of twilight are appearing on the horizon, with sunrise expected in about 45 minutes. It’s cold enough for sweatshirts and jackets, but not cold enough for hats. From our campsite we can see the lights from the town of Jerome and the cement plant near Clarkdale, with the town of Cottonwood spread out below us. There’s a light breeze, and the loudest sounds we hear right now are the snores of our fellow campers.
