None better. It has convenient parking and adequate restrooms. Not to
mention being dark, of course.

I have a couple friends coming in from Chicago tonight and tomorrow and
wanted to take them out to darker skies for some observing.  I'm on the far
east side of the valley so I'm thinking Picket Post area.
Any advice would be appreciated.

Ken
