Big Meadows, Robertson, VA, USA
No Sam Clinard = No Full Moon :(. But that hopefully means we’ll see more stars!
If you need some quality time to contemplate life or just need to space out (hah, hope you got that) a little, come stargaze with us! We’ll head out to Big Meadows in Shenandoah National Park – it’s this big grassy field that attracts the most experienced, shredly, and hardcore stargazers from all over the world every year. True fax. Did I also mention I’m 6 feet tall?
It’s a new moon so they sky will hopefully be clear and full of twinkly lights. Plenty of wish-making opportunities for those who need a little magic in their lives after the first week of school.
