McGown Peak Meadow
As early fall descends on Idaho we wandered into a beautiful meadow to try and capture the core of the Milky Way setting behind the beautiful McGown Peak. We weren't disappointed, the galactic center lined up perfectly behind the mountain with a bright golden meadow below the prominent peak. A perfect ending to a pretty perfect trip, 5 straight nights a cloudless night skies and a week that won't be soon forgotten.
