Where Were You When the Astronauts First Walked on the Moon?

Reader Contribution by Heidi Hunt

Do you remember? I do!

My husband and I were moving from Buffalo, N.Y., to Richland, Wash. Rather than stay in motels, we decided to camp our way across the country. On the night of July 20, we were setup in a campground in Montana, just west of Yellowstone National Park. It was a clear night and the moon was shining through the pines. We lay with our heads on a log, the campfire at our feet and marveled that at that moment there were humans walking around on the luminous orb in the sky. Far out!
