Then go to Sunspot, New Mexico. Seriously, that's the name of the place. There's a solar observatory there. It is at the end of one of the best stretches of pavement in the US. It's a blast on a good motorcycle. It is also about 9000 feet above sea level, if not higher.

Damn, that is a fantastic picture. I wish it was big enough to use as a desktop.

Budgie: I agree. This would make some awesome wallpaper.

Anyway, I first went out to the west this previous summer. Saw nevada, arizona, new mexico, and utah. The views I got of stars were simply stunning.
