Dark Skies of North Dakota

Dark Skies of North Dakota

I found a campsite about 45 minutes south of Bismark, North Dakota. I was in a good area for minimal light pollution and was excited by my surroundings. The area was a very rural low population area and my campsite was right on the Mississippi, so I was very hopeful for some dark skies.

I am coming close to the half way point of my trip, and as we depart Las Vegas and head for our next spot, I can’t help but be excited. The next spot on our trip is Zion National Park, one of the darkest skies in America and with the Persiod Meteor Shower coming up, I can’t wait to get there.

With a great night out shooting the Milky Way, I woke tired but happy and eager to get to my next spot, South Dakota. My original plan for photographing South Dakota was to go to the Black Hills National Forest and see what I could get there, however I came across a different place

Another Milky Way-less night, I awoke cold and disappointed and quickly packed up to move on to my next stop, North Dakota. I had another short drive today to and though I have never been to North Dakota I have heard a lot about it and certainly seem some amazing pictures.
