A Milky River

Having heard about this spot before but seeing few pictures from here, I decided to get out there and see it for myself. There is a winding and twisting road through a small town that leads to this bridge over the Red River between Texas and Oklahoma. The town is quiet but surprisingly full of light. Once you travel through the town, there is a tree line that leads to complete darkness. There, the moment you step foot on this bridge and look up, you see nearly every star in the sky and the sky looks immense and you are filled with awe.
