While staying in the secluded, small western town of Dubois, Wyoming my family and I made our way around looking for the best spot to sit and stare at the billions of stars overhead. We found ourselves heading up a ridge to the top where we sat and stared for hours upon hours.
After a while, towards the north the Aurora Borealis made an appearance, which was a site i would never forget. Not only was it a clear night, and the milky way was clear as could be, having the Northern Lights thrown into the mix was magnificent!
I will never forget standing there, next to an old horse chariot racing press box witnessing the milky way AND one of natures most bizarre phenomenon's photobombing each pictures. I tell anyone looking for a small town feel with many of local activities along with nature at its finest to stay in Dubois, Wyoming.
Please respect the places you find on The Outbound.
Always practice Leave No Trace ethics on your adventures. Be aware of local regulations and don't damage these amazing places for the sake of a photograph.
