Kurt Harvey shared this photo with EarthSky on Google+. He added a quotation from J.R.R. Tolkien:

Home is behind, the world ahead,
and there are many paths to tread
through shadows to the edge of night,
until the stars are all alight.

And he wrote:

I love visiting this spot each time I’m in the area. The view down this long straight stretch is mesmerizing. Hope you enjoy!

Beautiful, Kurt! Thank you.
