The Ghost Town of Paradise, Arizona resides in the Chiricahua Mountains. The area boasts Bortle 1 darkness and is a mecca for both sky and birdwatching. The road to the cemetery is rough and narrow with a high clearance vehicle recommended. Once there, you are treated to spectacular night skies. I was pleasantly surprised to find that I had been photobombed by a meteor during my viewing.
