Because of our remote location, our little part of Colorado is a wonderful place to star gaze
On a clear night we can turn off all of our lights and see millions of stars right from our deck, even the Milky Way (not my photo).
Because of its remote location, Lake City is well suited for great stargazing opportunities. On a clear night, one can marvel at the moon, planets, constellations, and other spectacular phenomena of our universe. Certainly, a good set of binoculars or telescope will enhance your “up close” viewing.
An initiative is underway to have a sixty-acre parcel near Lake City designated as a Dark Sky Park by the International Dark Sky Association. In the meantime, several areas in the area provide ideal stargazing opportunities such as Windy Point Overlook and several public campgrounds.
So if you are ever in town…don’t miss Wednesday nights on top of Windy Point and tell Phil that I sent you.
