Milky Way over Lone Eagle Peak in June

Indian Peaks Wilderness

In mid June, the Milky Way rises in the south over Lone Eagle Peak. The reflection of this remote peak in the Indian Peaks Wilderness area in Grand County is nearly perfect in Mirror Lake. While the hike here is long - ~ 16 miles round trip - the Colorado landscape here is unique and stunning and well worth the sweat. Photo © copyright by Rob Greebon.
