I spent Christmas with my parents in Tumtum, Washington. It’s a town of about 200 people located 45 minutes northeast of Spokane, WA. Basically, it’s out in the boonies! There’s a lot of land to explore, but being that it was cold out and I wasn’t in a very adventurous mood, I stuck pretty close to the house. It’s amazing being so far away from city lights just how much more of the night sky you can see – this is evident in some of the night shots below.
