Camping under the stars is great, but include the Milky Way and a site by the water .... Paradise.
A tree in the night
A backlight tree distracts for the magnitude of stars out at night.
Milky Way over the San Juan's
Generally one of the great fall foliage views of Colorado, this scenic view from the million dollar highway makes for a great fore and background for the Milky Way
Stars in the Sky
Isn't just incredible how many stars are in the sky. This is the top of the Milky Way arch surrounded by the rest of the stars in the galaxy.
A meteor from Perseid's Meteor Shower parallel's the milky way.
Pathway to the Stars
I came across this scene while walking around a vacation property we stayed at. The pathway (not man made) is a good lead to transition your eyes from the foreground to the stars

Milky Way Goodness
Clouds start to roll in and cover up the Milky Way Core.
Ideal Camp Site
An ideal camping site....beside the water and under the Milky Way.
Isn't this how every meteor shower should look? Well there was no meteor show this night. This is what I like to call the Star War's effect.
Straight thru the Milky Way
