Overnight in Shivapuri National Park

Last Friday, I abandoned Allison and Tegan and went on a couple hikes and an overnight camping trip with 3 other teachers and 21 students to Shivapuri National Park.  This was in preparation for our 4 night camping trip I'll be taking with the same group in early November while Allison's mom is visiting.

Morning view (Moon sliver and Venus barely visible up and to the left)
And, what you've all been waiting for (even though you might not have known it was coming):
Picture taken by Peter.  Yes, it was that awesome at night.
