12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest The American Experience
The Milky Way Above Bodie Hills, California

Bodie Hills State Park preserves the remains of the once-thriving 19th Century mining town of Bodie Hills. Because there are no street lights, photographers flock to Bodie Hills when the State Park opens the town on select evenings during the summer.
