Milky Way over Byers Peak - Fraser, Colorado 1

Byers Peak

Looking southwest about 3:45am, the Milky Way rises over Byers Peak near Fraser, Colorado, just a few miles up Hwy 40 from Winter Park. This well known mountain in the Fraser Valley in Grand County rises 12,804 feet. Soft clouds drifted by on the horizon, and a small meteor even made its way into this night sky Colorado image.
