Every summer, amateur astronomers gather in the high mountains of central Oregon at a place called Indian Trail Spring in the Ochoco National Forest. Astronomers from all over the world enjoy the warm friendly atmosphere and some of the darkest skies in the United States. Located on 40 acres, this is a primitive site has an elevation of over 5,000 feet and an unobstructed 360 degree horizon. Onsite amenities include hot showers, portable toilets, a chuckwagon, wi-fi, and the ever-popular espresso cart.
