The full supermoon shines on the abandoned Boundary Peak Lodge Motel on Montgomery Pass. This cluster of abandoned motels is located just over the Nevada border on a lonely stretch Highway 6 at an elevation of 7167 feet. On the West side of the highway, the remaining buildings include the motel, restaurant and 3 houses.

The Soper’s Restaurant and Casino across the road burned down on March 24th, 2010. ┬áThe East side of the highway still has a 2-story hotel, storage building, gas station awning, and row of cottages. There are also piles of debris from the fire and some junked cars out back. Most of these buildings have been abandoned since the late 1990′s. See more night photography from this location.
