 Pam and I took our daughter Kelley and her three girls, Sydney, Brooklyn and Zoe out to watch the Perseids Meteor Shower. We went up to the top of Guannella Pass. We arrived around 9:30 pm and set up our camp. It was a little cold at 11,670 feet so we bundled up in blankets and watched the show for the next 4 hours. It was fun bringing our grand children to something they had never seen before.
