The Milky Way appears over a lone tree

After reading about some of the best places to see the stars I was happy to find out that one of the best on the East Coast was about 4 hours away from me. Cherry Springs State Park is located in the northern part of Pennsylvania. Here you can see the stars like most people have never seen them before. I was lucky enough to capture this picture while visiting there.
