Volcano Peak in Utah's West Desert

Often overlooked by tourists zipping past on the interstate seeking ski slopes and sandstone.

Desolate and austere best describes this place.

Full of vastness, craggy peaks, and a plethora of dark skies.

I felt the need to sit beneath the firmament for a night and this place was well suited.

For a place to be wild, it needs to be dark. Have its skin exposed to the universe. To not be hidden by urban lights which shroud it from the sky
