The Dark Skies of Utah

Utah is home to some of the darkest skies left in the United States. The image was taken in the Grand Staircase-Escalante area. It is so dark there, that there is no artificial light on the horizon! Just the beautiful stars overhead - and a ton of really fantastic and out-of-this world looking rock sculptures! We used a light to light the rock up to give it some definition.
