I wanted to ask my captures where we were heading or what in fact was this giant piece of rock was, but it was too risky. For now I will just enjoy being able to at least see something else other than pitch black space. Sitting back in my seat, I imagined what it would be like wondering around this area; standing at the base of the oak wood, looking up to see millions of leaves sprouting off of skeletal arms and fingers. Next would be the tarmac which made the road, seeming like it would take years to cross to the other side. I don 't think I could reach the rocky object all the way in the sky, but I could admire it from afar, staring up in all my
