The Milky Way in Colorado

320/365: The Milky Way in Colorado

The Milky Way in Colorado taken in San Juan National Forest.  Although the Milky Way is typically not very bright in November, I managed to get this shot after sunset.  Getting this photo was quite the adventure as we sat in the pitch black of the Colorado night waiting for the sun to set.  We watched 2 beavers in a pond nearby swimming around and diving under the water as we waited.  Our television was nature and the surrounding landscape.  It was my son’s first time to experience seeing the Milky Way in person and his reaction was priceless!
