With the prevalence of light pollution even in smaller towns, it’s not often that I’m privy to star-filled nights. But when my partner and I took a trip up to Rocky Mountain National Park, I had to give it a try. Trail Ridge Road, the highest continuous road in the United States, is known as an excellent place for star viewing. If you’re planning a visit to Rocky Mountain National Park in the next couple weeks, it’s worth missing dinner to see a sky like this. The road should be open until mid-October, or until bad weather hits, whichever comes first. So take some hot chocolate, and enjoy the view.
Got any tips for star photography? Would love to hear them.
