Thanks. One of the very few times I use 4WD low in the Pathfinder - the road to this location. A couple of the places the side of the road had fallen off and it's almost a 1000' sheer drop off the side. Pretty cool stuff. :-) I definitely plan on going back. Everything was just perfect. The other club members who went to other 'usual' sites got dewed out by midnight, and it was perfectly dry at this location.

Just heard the buzz on this and had to come and check it out. Very nice work Jeff. All too easy to burn out the stars, but you have brought out some nice color in them. 4500' up...and you carried you equip on your back right? lol, just kidding, nice image.
