Sadly the photogenic portion of the Milky Way was in the opposite direction of the ruins of Fort Churchill, the former US Army fort, and pass-through for both the Pony Express and the Overland Telegraph. Instead we have the silhouette of the Churchill Buttes and the lights from Reno, about an hour away.
