Dante's View
Death Valley National PArk

It seems like it has been YEARS since there's been a major meteor shower unobstructed by a bright moon! 
Last year for the Perseids, I drove up to Delamar and although I got some nice photos, the moonlight was clearly an issue.

This year, however, there was no moonlight to interfere... only smoke from California wildfires.
