2011 had been a weird year, the sierra mountains in California had numerous amount of snow that lasted until July of the same year. I took this picture on a trip on one of my early backpacking trips with a very nice group that I met throw a website called ( it is an unforgotten trip since I met people whom became my inspiration to keep on going in this amazing sport. We visited Emigrant wilderness and stayed there for three, I was hoping for a some clouds for my sunset picture, but it turend to be a sky full with stars, so a took the chance and made this picture.

Tech info: I took one picture after sunset, and then waited until the milky way lined up where I wanted it, then took another one, blend them manually in PS.

Hope you enjoy it as I did :)
