Milky Way Over Kitchi Lake

The evening of July 29th presented an extremely clear evening, cool air and 2 meteor showers coming from the east.  A friend of mine has a resort on Kitchi Lake east of Bemidji.  From the resorts point of view, the Milky Way passes directly over the lake, aligning with the docks shortly after midnight.  She was kind enough to let me shut the lights off they have near the shore to eliminate light pollution and try my hand at a new location for astrophotography.
