We drove east from Soda Springs, Idaho looking for a nice spot to view the Perseid meteor shower. After a short drive through the forest, we found a road leading up a hillside to an abandoned quarry. Perched on that hillside, we could look straight across the valley to the towering treetops on the other side. This photo captures our view of the stars that night, which stretched from those treetops to the top of the hill we were standing on.
