Firefly season lights up these mountains!

One of the many luxuries here in our valley is that there are not many “Safe Shine” lights, which those lights are provided by the electric company so they can earn money during non peak hours (wasting valuable fossil fuels), so our valley is GEORGOUS at night.  On a clear night the sky is filled with a gazillion stars and planets which makes we want to spend more time at night identifying those amazing star formations other than the big and little dipper.  From around the beginning of June until mid June the fireflies are out in mass trying to find a partner which to do their thing and procreate.  It is an amazing site, one which we have been enjoying as we sit outside each night for the past week, and we look forward to this season each year!
