Have you ever seen the Milky Way galaxy?

I live in southern California, we have this accursed thing called the "marine layer" which always hides the stars, plus all the smog and light pollution. I didn't truly see the Milky Way galaxy until I was 18, while hiking up a canyon in the mountains at night with my friends on a camping trip. The clouds rolled in and we were all on acid (LSD). We thought we were going to get caught in a flash flood and die. We were scrambling up the canyon at night to get away from the river. We stopped for a break and to smoke a joint. The wind picked up and carried the clouds away. The night sky was like black velvet and you could see every star. The Milky Way was like a big bright stripe across the sky, the first time I saw ever saw it clearly.
