Tori Jane is a storm chaser, writer, photographer, and the village idiot - in that order. When she's not out and about dancing with the meanest storms on planet Earth for funsies she can be found wandering, shooting landscapes, writing, editing photos, and otherwise up to no good. Legend has it that she can also be occasionally spotted typing up short bios in the third person, but those rumors are unsubstantiated.
So, let’s be honest here: North Dakota isn’t exactly teeming with visitors. With fewer than one million people and as a state seldom considered for family vacations, it might seem hard to imagine that there’s much of anything to do around here. Did you know, though, that thanks in part to its remoteness, North Dakota is one of the best states in the nation for something like, say, stargazing and night sky viewing? It’s true; North Dakota is a nature lover’s dream come true, and with so few visitors, it’s the perfect place to quite literally get far, far away from it all. Our seemingly endless skies are perfect for stargazers in particular. For the darkest sky in North Dakota, consider heading to Crow Flies High Butte at Crow Flies High State Recreation Area. You will have never seen so many stars overhead!
If you didn’t know where to go before for the darkest sky in North Dakota, at least you do now – just in time for watching the next big meteor shower! Where’s your favorite place for stargazing in this beautiful state? Tell us your thoughts in the comments!
