Said no more counting dollars, we'll be-we'll be counting stars .... One Republic. Abbot Hut and the Milkyway. The best place to take shots of the Milkyway is from high elevations on a clear night. The stars come out super crisp. Consequently, Its hard to beat Abbot Pass. Taken Aug 24, 2016. I was out on the pass taking pictures at night all by myself. For the most part with no light. In this photo, I happened to capture a person coming out of the Abbot hut with their red light to use the washroom. The neat thing is that it lights up the hut a bit. Otherwise, it would have just been Mount Victoria as a Silhouette.
