Fremont Peak

Day One Hundred and Forty Five. The purpose of this trip was to watch the Perseid Meteor Shower and get some cool pictures of meteors streaking across the sky. We hiked up the mountain a bit before sunset and was stunned by the cloud layer rolling by beneath us. The view was so striking, I was inspired to shoot a time-lapse of the setting sun over the rolling clouds while waiting for the stars to come out. After the stars came out, we were stunned again to find just how bright the Milky Way was up here. We were only about 3,200 feet up, but the dense low lying cloud layer was keeping much of the light pollution at bay. This resulted in a couple of epic Milky Way pictures and one incredible time-lapse of our galaxy spinning around Polaris :)
