Potato Chip Rock and the Milky Way

The Mt Woodson trail is a popular place to take selfies on what they call Potato Chip Rock.  It is a short hike but a steep hike.  I am always amazed seeing people with little to no water hiking.  Parking is a pain and it’s crowded to get here early or be prepared to wait for a long time at the top to take a pic.  Seems that standing on top of a rock or taking a picture of the milky way is our new activity to create buzz on our Instagram accounts now.

Anza Borrego is a great place to see the starts due to it’s distance from large city lights.  It is also the home to some amazing sculptures in the desert.  Combined they make a unique opportunity to see the milky and take some astro photography.
