The Bristlecone national forest at 11,350ft elevation presents the best night sky's i have ever seen. This is the Patriarch grove near the top of the white mountains east of Mt. Whitney. Later that evening the clouds cleared out and revealed a breathtaking night sky. A must visit destination for any night sky photographer but be warned. The air is thin and its a roll of the dice as to the weather you will get. The snow keeps this spot inaccessible most of the year. The road is as steep as it can get and the last 11 miles are dirt road. No problem for high clearance vehicles but don't try it in your Kia sedan.
