Stargazing in Dubois

Layne Allison

Outta This World!

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.

One of the things that I love about photography is how the quality of light can make or break a photo. When shooting outdoors it is those early hours in the morning that I love the most.

It all started with a simple Google search. My buddy, Cameron, and I were procrastinating studying for our law school finals when we started daydreaming about a getaway.
