The Milky Way rises very early in the morning in the eastern sky in March. In order to photograph it over many of the arches and monuments in Arches National Park, one has to be out and in place at 3am in the morning. Balanced Rock is in a perfect position to be photographed with the Milky Way from March through late October.
