Experiencing the Shafer Trail at Night Uneder the Milky Way

I decided to venture out onto the Shafer Trail in Canyonlands National Park in the middle of the night to see what it would be like. It was amazing, the dark night skies in Canyonlands are some of the best in the country and allow for incredible views of the stars and the Milky Way.
