At 10,000ft above sea level, Blue River, Colorado provides some of the clearest skies around. In this photo you can see Sagittarius just to the upper left of the middle of the picture. The bright glow in the middle of the picture is the central region of the Milky Way Galaxy. Partially obscured by the trees, Scorpious is relected in the water, and covers the right hand portion of the photograph.
