Kit Peak National Observatory

Did a few small hikes in Saguaro West and drove the scenic park road, then headed out to Kit National Observatory for dinner and their evening program. About 20 miles out of Tucson followed by a drive up a 12 mile road to an elevation of ~7000 feet. Got to see a great sunset, view stars in a 2.1 meter telescope and got a great lecture on Greek mythology and the stars followed by more viewing through binoculars. The last adventure was driving down the mountain with our headlights covered!
