In the heart of Coconino National Forest, there’s a place fully surrounded by pine trees on one side and on the other side it opens wide to the spectacular views of the world. I stood there for long hours right at the edge of the Mogollon Rim, watching in awe the mysteries of the cosmic world. There’s something you can’t see anywhere else. The beauty that lies beyond the edge of the world - of the stars and galaxies. Spiraling and whirling from here to eternity. That night was even more dramatic as Mars made its closest swing by earth.
